Who Is Liable For a Shooting at a Hookah Lounge?

For years, attorney contributor Brian Kent has fought to ensure victims of violent crime receive the justice they deserve in bar shooting lawsuits. In a recent discussion, Brian outlined who can be held accountable for shootings at a hookah lounge.

"Patrons and employees of hookah bars look to property owners for safety while on the property. Lounge owners are bound to this responsibility by law. To reduce the risk of preventable crime, the hookah lounge owner should ensure there is ample lighting, trained bouncers, and security cameras. If the lounge owner fails to provide sufficient security, they could be held accountable in a lawsuit."

"If the crime was found to be foreseeable or predictable based on an increase in crime or violence, and security negligence was a factor, shooting victims may be able to seek monetary compensation through civil lawsuits. Victims should speak with a shooting victim attorney to learn more about their legal options."
