Legal Recourse For Victims of Bar Shootings and Their Families

Attorney contributor Brian Kent works closely with victims injured in bar shootings in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent has shared his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families.

It is necessary for victims of criminal violence to understand that all commercial property owners are legally obligated to protect their patrons and employees from reasonably foreseeable crimes. To fulfill this duty, property owners must provide adequate security on site. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security and someone is injured on the premises due to their negligence, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against that property owner.

This is not all that is necessary to have grounds for a security negligence lawsuit. The crime victim’s lawyer must also be able to prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. For example, if a shooting occurred at a bar that had a previous history of violent crime, yet no security improvements were established, then the crime may be considered reasonably foreseeable. Overall, if a reasonably foreseeable crime occurs on a property because of inadequate security, then the property owner may be held liable for the crime.

If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a bar shooting, you can learn more about your legal options by reaching out to an experienced gun crime attorney like Mr. Kent.
