Can I File a Lawsuit For Being Shot Inside a Bar?

Commentator and experienced gun crime attorney Brian Kent fights for justice for bar shooting victims in civil lawsuits. Below he addresses when a victim can file a lawsuit after being shot inside a bar

"When violence erupts inside a bar, nightclub, or other business, it is critical that all of the details are investigated. Some bar shootings occur due to the bar's security negligence. Victims should know bar owners have a legal obligation to ensure their properties are safe by reducing the risk of violence however possible. This may be done by hiring trained security bouncers, installing security cameras, or even maintaining a well-lit environment. If a bar shooting takes place, the question of security or lack thereof can be a factor when filing a lawsuit for compensation."

"Furthermore, if the crime was foreseeable, the victim may have reason to file a lawsuit against the negligent bar owner. A shooting may be considered foreseeable if the bar had a history of violence. If the owner was aware of this yet chose not to improve security by hiring additional bouncers or doing weapons checks, the bar would be negligent and could be held liable. To explore the best course of legal action, victims of bar shootings should speak with an experienced gun crime attorney."
