Legal Options For Nightclub Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard shares his knowledge on the legal options available for victims of criminal violence at places like nightclubs.

All commercial property owners have a legal duty of providing adequate security to protect their patrons from foreseeable hazards. This includes owners of places like parking lots, nightclubs, and bars. A commercial property owner should take into account any prior violent crime that has occurred in the area and appropriately adjust their security to prevent future patrons from any foreseeable dangers.

If a nightclub owner fails to provide a reasonable standard of security and a shooting happens because of the inadequate security, then the nightclub owner may be held partially liable for the crime. However, it must be clear that the shooting was reasonably foreseeable and occurred only because of the negligent security.
