Who Can Be Held Liable For Bar Shootings?
Attorney Brian Kent has some ideas to share regarding property owner liability for violent crime when a customer gets injured. As a shooting victim lawyer he offers the following information:
Owning a bar is a major responsibility, and making sure customers are safe is one of the most important aspects of this responsibility. Bar owners and all other property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises free from foreseeable dangers which could hurt their customers and employees. In some cases, violent crimes like shootings and stabbings are foreseeable and may have been preventable by better security measures.
When negligent security is to blame for failing to prevent a violent incident, the victims who have been injured in the incident could have grounds for a premises liability lawsuit against the property owner. In order to have grounds for a case, the victim’s lawyer will need to establish that the crime was foreseeable and that negligent security enabled the crime to occur.
Proving premises liability for a bar shooting or stabbing is a complicated process. Crime victims who are curious about their legal options should discuss their case with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
