Who Is Liable for a Lounge Parking Lot Shooting?

Laurence Banville, an attorney contributor, has been helping victims of violent crime in New York get justice for years. He recently explained how family members of those who were fatally shot at a lounge can take legal action by filing a lounge shooting lawsuit.

"Under the law, bar and lounge owners have a duty of care to ensure the safety of their patrons and staff. This duty includes providing adequate security measures to protect against foreseeable criminal acts both inside and around the property. Security cameras and hired security personnel are just a couple of ways that a bar owner can reduce the risk of danger."

"If a bar or lounge fails to fulfill this duty of care and a patron or staff member is injured as a result, the bar or lounge may be held liable for any resulting damages. This includes negligence claims if the bar or lounge failed to provide adequate security measures or respond appropriately when a potential security risk was identified. A crime may be found foreseeable if the lounge or location had seen an increase in violence but the owner did not increase its security."

"Victims who are shot outside a lounge may have grounds to seek justice against the negligent lounge owners. If the shooting was a foreseeable risk of the lounge's operation and the owners failed to take reasonable steps to protect against it, they may be held liable for any resulting harm. Victims may be able to recover damages for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. An experienced gun violence attorney can guide victims and their families to get the justice and compensation they deserve."
