Legal Advice for Victims of Bar Shootings

Managing attorney Laurence Banville has years of experience defending personal injury victims. In an interview, Banville offers legal advice for victims who may be questioning, can you sue someone for shooting you?

"Bar and lounge owners have a legal obligation to maintain a safe environment for all patrons within and surrounding their property. To uphold this responsibility, bar owners should implement proper safety measures, including, but not limited to, security cameras, employing security guards, and conducting security checks. Should a business owner fail to meet adequate safety regulations, they could be found negligent in a court of law."

"Negligence is determined if the crime occurred on the owner's property was foreseeable. Foreseeable crimes are determined through various factors, but one example is if crime rates have risen in the area. In this case, if a bar or lounge owner neglected to implement additional safety measures, they could be held liable for the victim's injuries. If a business owner is found liable in the court of law, they could be mandated to compensate for the victim's medical expenses, lost wages, and emotional trauma. If you or a loved one has been shot or stabbed in a bar, you should hire an experienced lawyer to determine the best course of legal action."
