Can Nightclub Owners Be Held Liable For Violent Crime on Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent of www.crimevictim.Attorney represents nightclub shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits.

“Commercial property owners are bound by the law to maintain the safety of their patrons and employees while on their property. Owners must provide adequate security on the premises which may include things like video surveillance, metal detectors, and other things of this nature. If a property owner acts negligently and fails to supply adequate security, then he or she may be held partially liable for a shooting or another violent act that occurs on his or her property,” explains Mr. Kent.

He continued: “Inadequate security is not enough for a victim to have a valid lawsuit against a property owner. A victim’s lawyer must also prove that the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable by the property owner. So if a shooting takes places on a property with a history of criminal violence and the owner does nothing to improve security, then the crime may be deemed reasonably foreseeable. Each case is different, but generally if a property fails to meet the legal requirement of adequate security and a violent crime is deemed reasonably foreseeable, the victim can file a suit against the owner.”

If you or someone close to you has fallen victim to a nightclub shooting, you can familiarize yourself with the relevant legal options by discussing your case with a crime victim attorney.
