Injured in a Bar Shooting? Here's What You Need to Know

In the wake of the recent bar shooting in Pittsburgh, many people are wondering what their legal options are if they are injured in a similar incident. To get some answers, we spoke with Guy D'Andrea, Esq., a gun crime attorney in Pennsylvania.

Darla Medina: Thank you for joining us today, Mr. Kent. What can injured bar shooting victims do with a civil case against liable parties?

Guy D'Andrea: In a civil case, the victim can sue the person who was responsible for the shooting, as well as any other parties who may be liable, such as the bar owner or the bartender. The victim can seek damages for their medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses.

Darla Medina: What are the challenges of filing a civil case after a bar shooting?

Guy D'Andrea: There are a few challenges that victims of bar shootings may face when filing a civil case. First, it can be difficult to prove that the shooter was negligent. The victim will need to show that the shooter acted carelessly or recklessly, and that their actions caused the victim's injuries.

Second, the victim may have to deal with insurance companies. Insurance companies will often try to deny or minimize the victim's claims. The victim will need to have a strong legal case in order to overcome these challenges.

Darla Medina: What advice would you give to someone who has been injured in a bar shooting?

Guy D'Andrea: If you have been injured in a bar shooting, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. You should also contact an experienced gun crime attorney as soon as possible. The attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options, and they can help you file a civil case if necessary.

Darla Medina: Thank you for your time, Mr. Kent. This has been very informative.
