Can I File a Lawsuit For Being Shot Outside a Nightclub?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent specializes in civil law in Pennsylvania. He often represents victims of violent crimes, such as nightclub shootings. During a recent discussion, Brian explained the victims' legal rights, including when they could sue if shot outside a nightclub.

"Nightclub owners are required by law to offer protection for their patrons and employees. Criminal behavior, such as shootings or stabbings, is often preventable. The club owner should provide enough security to protect them from these preventable threats. Basic security measures can include security cameras, trained security personnel, and sufficient parking lot lighting. If nightclub owners fail to implement an adequate safety plan, they can be held accountable in a civil lawsuit."

"To file a civil suit, the victim must prove that the shooting was foreseeable. If acts of violence frequently occurred at the establishment or in its vicinity, then a bar or nightclub shooting could be deemed predictable. The owner could be held responsible for the victim's damages if they failed to increase their security knowing the risks. Victims of nightclub shootings should seek legal advice from an experienced violent crimes attorney to fully explore their options."
