Filing a Lawsuit For Bar Shooting Injuries

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard has worked with bar shooting victims and their families, helping them get justice. Michael recently explained some of the legal options open to these victims, including their right to sue for being shot at a bar.

"Bar and nightclub owners have a legal and moral duty to protect their patrons and employees from preventable crime. They can fulfill this duty by providing adequate security. This may include ample lighting, installing video surveillance, and hiring security guards. However, if a bar owner fails to provide adequate security on site, and a shooting occurs as a result of their neglect, they can be held liable for the crime."

"Additionally, if a shooting occurs at a bar that has a previous history of violent crime, yet the bar owner failed to make security improvements, they may be held accountable for the reasonably foreseeable crime. A bar shooting victim's lawyer will seek to prove that the crime occurred due to negligent security and that it was reasonably foreseeable. Victims shot at a bar, and the families of those shot and killed may be entitled to financial compensation."
