Who Can Be Liable for a Bar Shooting?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard is an experienced gun crimes lawyer who represents victims of bar shootings in civil lawsuits in Florida. We recently sat down with Michael to explain when a lounge or bar owner could be held accountable for a shooting. 

"While violent crimes such as shootings can happen everywhere, bars and lounges have a potential for increased violence due to the consumption of alcohol. For this reason, bar owners have a heavier responsibility to provide proper protection for patrons and employees. The bar owner owes a duty of care under the law, which means they must maintain security precautions to decrease the likelihood of preventable violence. Bars that want to secure their property generally choose to install sufficient lighting in the parking lot, security cameras, and by hiring trained security guards. If the security of a bar is found to be neglected, the owner could be held liable for damages."

"Victims, on the other hand, will need to show that the bar owner's negligence allowed the violent incident to occur. Furthermore, if the bar had a history of violence or if the surrounding area had an upsurge in crime, the bar owner would be held responsible for increasing its security. If the bar owner did not do so, an experienced gun crimes lawyer could show that the crime was predictable and that the bar owner failed to take the appropriate security precautions. By filing a lawsuit, victims may be able to seek financial compensation to cover medical expenditures and other losses."
