According to the Orlando Sentinal, a shooting occurred in the parking lot of Club Majestic located at 801 John Young Pkwy, Orlando, FL 32804.
Just before 3:15 a.m. on Sunday, February 6, 2022, a 47-year-old man was shot in the nightclub's parking lot. Police say he was taken to a local hospital but later died from his injuries. The incident is still under investigation.
Attorney contributor Michael Haggard fights for justice for surviving family members of victims fatally shot at a bar or nightclub. Michael helps them file a lawsuit against a business for fatal shootings.
"State laws require nightclub owners to take reasonable steps to prevent patrons from being harmed on their premises. The chances for violence-related injuries, such as shootings, can be reduced when adequate security measures are in place. Safety from preventable dangers, including foreseeable violent crime, can be reduced with security cameras, hired bouncers, and sufficient lighting. If a nightclub owner fails to uphold this duty, they can be seen as negligent."
"If a nightclub had a history of violence, the club owner would be responsible for increasing its security. This could include metal detectors or even hiring additional bounces. In cases where the bar owner knows of the risks but does not adjust its security, the families of those shot and killed on the property may have grounds for a lawsuit against the negligent nightclub owner. The surviving members of victims who were fatally shot can help get the compensation they deserve with the help of an experienced shooting victim attorney."
