Attorney contributor Brian Kent fights for justice for bar shooting victims and their families, helping them get the financial compensation they deserve. Recently, Brian highlighted when victims or their families injured or killed in Pennsylvania pub shootings could sue.
"Bars and pubs tend to have a higher rate of crime than other establishments due to the consumption of alcohol. Pub owners are responsible for maintaining a level of preventative security measures to reduce violent crime. If a shooting on the premises of a pub causes victims to be hurt or killed, law enforcement should conduct a proper investigation. However, there is often more to the investigation than just identifying and arresting suspects. It's important to look into the bar's security to determine if the bar owner could have prevented the incident. Ultimately, the owner of a pub could be found negligent if they failed to offer sufficient security, which could include hired security personnel, security cameras, and adequate lighting."
"If a pub shooting is determined to result from the pub owner's security negligence, a civil lawsuit may be filed. An experienced gun crime lawyer can help victims or their surviving families learn more about their legal rights to compensation."
