Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Bar?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard is an experienced shooting victim attorney who represents victims injured in violent crimes. We recently sat down with Michael and discussed when victims could sue for being shot at a bar.

"Alcohol-related incidents and violent crimes, such as shootings and stabbings, are common problems for bars and clubs. Bar owners are legally responsible for ensuring their patrons and employees are safe from preventable crimes. A standard security procedure should include hired security personnel, well-lit parking lots, and security monitoring cameras. If a bar neglects to provide security features to reduce the risk of dangers, they could be held liable in a court of law."

"The risk of violent incidents in bars is not always foreseeable. However, there are specific measures that bar owners should take to reduce the likelihood of violent incidents occurring on their premises. For instance, if the bar had a history of violent incidents but no improvements were made to the property's security, the bar owner could be considered negligent. A shooting victim is likely to need the guidance of an experienced shooting victim attorney to file a civil suit that may result in them recovering compensation."
