Are Bar Owners Liable For Shootings On Their Premises?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents bar shooting victims and their families in civil cases. Here are some general thoughts from Michael regarding the legal rights of these victims and families:

Bar owners have a legal duty to do all in their power to ensure the safety of their customers, employees, and other property visitors. This includes protecting against foreseeable dangers. Providing reasonable security standards is a key part of this legal duty.

In some bar shooting cases, the shooting may have been prevented if the bar owner hadn't failed to meet their security obligations. For example, if there had been a history of violence at the bar, the owner would have a legal duty to improve security. If no efforts to improve security were made, the victims and their families could have grounds for a lawsuit.

Each bar shooting case is unique and liability depends on the specific circumstances of the case. If you or a loved one is a victim of a bar shooting and you'd like to learn more about your family's legal options, we advise discussing your case with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
