Bar Owner Liability For Shootings and Stabbings
Attorney contributor and gun crime injury lawyer Brian Kent, has offered some general information on the legal options available to violent crime victims and their families:
Bar owners have a duty to protect their customers from foreseeable dangers. This includes making sure the premises are safe from the risk of preventable violent crime. When a shooting or stabbing occurs at a bar or nightclub, it’s important to ask if there were adequate security measures in place to reduce the risk of such crimes.
In some cases, negligent security is partially to blame for shootings, stabbings, and other violent incidents. When this happens, those who were injured and the families of those killed during the violent incident may have grounds for a lawsuit against the bar owner.
Premises liability for bar shootings and stabbings is a complicated legal concept. In order to determine if your family has grounds for a lawsuit against a bar owner for a violent incident, we advise speaking with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
