Legal Options for Victims Shot Outside a Concert Venue

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson has years of experience guiding victims of violent crimes, like shootings, to pursue lawsuits for compensation. During an interview with Bobby, we asked him to share his knowledge to help victims determine their best course of legal action and if they can sue a venue owner for being shot.

"Just like most commercial property, concert venues have a legal obligation to offer a safe environment for their customers and staff. Venue owners are responsible for providing adequate security measures to prevent foreseeable crimes, including shootings. Adequate security varies but can include installing security cameras to employing security guards. If proper security measures are not being implemented and a shooting occurs, the venue owners could be found negligent in a civil lawsuit." 

"Victims have legal options when they are shot on the property of a concert venue. First, victims are advised to secure a crime victim attorney's services who will want to prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable. A foreseeable crime could be if the property owner was aware of previous criminal activity at or near the venue but failed to increase security in measures to reduce its risk of violent crimes. In cases of neglect, the victims and their families may have grounds for a compensation claim."
