Justice For Victims of Fatal Bar Shootings

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea has fought for justice for victims of violent crimes across the state of Pennsylvania. He has years of experience helping bar shooting victims or their surviving families receive the justice they rightfully deserve by filing bar shooting lawsuits. In a recent interview, Brian discussed who can be held accountable for shootings in a bar parking lot.

"Bar shootings are devastating and heartbreaking events that have become all too common in our society today. They often occur without warning and can cause devastating physical, emotional, and financial losses for victims and their surviving family members. As such, bars and similar establishments are legally obligated to provide security to protect their staff and patrons from preventable dangers. This includes taking reasonable steps to protect them from foreseeable risks of harm, such as by implementing safety protocols, training staff in safety practices, and providing adequate security. Additionally, security cameras can be used throughout the property to deter such criminal activity."

"In cases involving bar shootings, victims and their families may be able to seek legal recourse to hold the bar or establishment liable if they were found to have neglected such duty. Depending on the specific circumstances of the case, victims and their families may be able to file a premises liability lawsuit, a negligence suit, or a wrongful death suit. These types of suits can help victims and their families seek financial compensation for their losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, and damages for pain and suffering. It is important that bar shooting victims and their families understand their legal rights and available options. An experienced violent crimes attorney can help them understand the specifics of their case and determine the best course of action."
