Lawsuits For Hookah Lounge Shootings

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville has represented bar and lounge shooting victims in civil lawsuits in the state of New York for many years. He has recently provided information regarding the victims' legal option to file a lawsuit against negligent hookah lounge owners

"Bar and lounge owners have a legal responsibility to provide safety on their property. Unfortunately, these types of establishments are often a haven for violent crimes, such as assaults, stabbings, and shootings. This is why preventative security measures should be a top priority to decrease the risk of violent crime and injuries to their patrons and staff. These measures could include video monitoring cameras, hired bouncers, and having properly lit parking lots. If a shooting takes place on or around the property and the bar and lounge owner has neglected the security, the owner could be deemed liable. Victims and their families should ask if the property owner did everything they could to prevent the crime."

"In addition to negligent property security, the bar owner could be found responsible for compensating the victims if the crime was foreseeable. If the property has had previous incidents of violence, but the owner failed to increase its security, crimes that take place can be considered foreseeable. In cases of negligence, bar and lounge owners may be held liable in a shooting victim lawsuit. Victims and their families should employ the services of an experienced gun violence lawyer to best explore their legal options."
