How Much Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Club?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents shooting victims in the state of Florida. As a gun crimes injury lawyer, he sat down to discuss how much a victim or their family could sue for being shot at a club. 

"Violent crimes, such as shootings and stabbings, are common problems for bars and clubs due to the consumption of alcohol. The responsibility of ensuring patrons and employees are safe from preventable crimes falls on the club owners. A standard security plan could include trained security personnel, well-lit parking lots, and working security cameras. If a club neglects to provide sufficient security, they can be held liable in a court of law."

"All aspects of a violent crime are taken into account when calculating a gun crime settlement. The court will look to identify if the crime was foreseeable and if security negligence was to blame. A crime could be deemed foreseeable if the club had a history of violence yet failed to make appropriate security improvements, such as conducting bag checks. A shooting victim or their surviving family members should discuss their options for seeking compensation with an experienced shooting victim attorney."
