Legal Options of Shooting Victims Outside a Club

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has a wide range of experience representing victims of violent crimes, including cases of shootings. Kent has offered some of his knowledge on the rights of victims shot outside of a club.

"Bar and lounge owners have a legal obligation to create a safe environment for patrons in and around their property. They should do their best to protect not only their property but those within it. Some security measures that should be taken to ensure safety could include hiring security guards, installing security cameras throughout the property, and properly training staff. An owner can be held liable in a civil lawsuit if a customer is injured on a club's premises and these steps were not taken."

"In cases that involve shootings, if an attorney can prove a crime is reasonably foreseeable, then the owner of a club can be held liable. If the area's crime rates continually increase, an owner must increase safety measures to provide secure surroundings. If the property owner fails to take additional security measures, they can be considered negligent. In cases of negligence, the victims and the families of victims should know that they may have legal rights to pursue a civil lawsuit and could possibly receive compensation for damages."
