Filing Lawsuits For Bar Shootings

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan is an experienced shooting victim lawyer representing bar shooting victims and their families through civil lawsuits. Kevin sat down with Legal Herald to discuss the legal rights available to both bar shooting victims and the families of victims fatally shot at a bar.

"Bar owners bear a huge responsibility for the safety of those that visit their establishment. Some locations have a higher level of crime and require more security measures, while others have a lower level of crime and require less security measures. However, it is the bar owner's legal responsibility to provide enough security to decrease the possibility of violence on their property. Security cameras, sufficient lighting, and qualified trained security guards could all be included in this gesture. If a bar owner fails to do so, they may be held accountable for damages caused by negligent security."

"Bar shootings often happen as a result of the bar owner's negligence, such as inadequate security. If, for example, crime in the vicinity was on the rise, the bar owner would be responsible for beefing up security. Additional preventative measures could include hiring more security or conducting coat or weapon checks. Victims can file a lawsuit and possibly win a settlement for damages if the bar owner is proved to have been negligent and aware of the likelihood of violence. An experienced bar shooting attorney can assist victims and families of those slain in bar shootings in obtaining the justice and financial compensation they are rightfully entitled to."
