Can Bar Owners Be Held Liable For Shootings on Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents victims of preventable crimes in civil lawsuits. We've asked him to briefly discuss bar owner liability for shootings, stabbings, and other violent incidents on their properties:

Maintaining safety is a key responsibility for all property owners. These property owners must do all that they can to ensure that their premises are free of foreseeable dangers that could end up hurting visitors. This includes providing reasonable protections against the risk of foreseeable violent crime. After a bar or nightclub shooting, it's important to determine if the property owner did all that they could to prevent violence.

For example, let's say a shooting happened at a bar with a history of other violent incidents. Even after the previous violence, ownership failed to attempt to improve safety through measures like hiring security guards or installing metal detectors at entrances. In this case, the shooting victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner for inadequate security.

Determining bar owner liability for a specific case is a complicated process which will require the expertise of an experienced crime victim attorney. If you or a loved one has been wounded or killed in a shooting at a bar or nightclub, we advise discussing your family's legal options with an attorney.

Taking legal action can help provide financial support for damages like medical expenses, lost wages, funeral costs, and pain and suffering and can demand accountability from negligent property owners who fail to keep their customers safe.
