Can a Nightclub Be Held Liable for Shootings? 

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced shooting victim lawyer with years of experience representing nightclub shooting victims in private civil lawsuits. Brian recently sat down with us to answer the commonly asked question, Can a nightclub be held liable for shootings? 

"Nightclub and bar owners, by law, have a strict responsibility to ensure their properties are safe. This legal obligation includes providing protection within the property to combat preventable violent crimes. Too often, fights, shootings, and stabbings occur at these types of establishments, so preventative measures should always be in place to reduce their occurrence in the first place. Without safety measures, like security cameras, adequate lighting, and hired security personnel, the nightclub opens the doors to these preventable crimes."

"If a nightclub shooting occurs and patrons are injured, an investigation into the suspect will take place. Additionally, the nightclub will be investigated to determine if sufficient safety measures were being implemented at the time of the incident. In many cases, a nightclub shooting could have been prevented if not for inadequate security or other types of negligence by the nightclub owner. For instance, the nightclub owner could be considered negligent for failing to increase its security following previous violence on the property or in the area. Such measures as hiring more security guards and conducting weapons searches could have further deterred the violence. Victims should continue to learn their legal options by consulting with an experienced shooting victim lawyer."
