Can I Sue If I Was Shot at a Comedy Club? 

Reed Martens, a Missouri attorney who provides commentary for the Legal Herald, has experience representing gun injury victims. Reed often represents bar shooting victims and their families in private civil lawsuits. During a recent conversation, he answered a common question, "Can I sue for being shot at a comedy club?"

"Like other property owners, comedy club owners have a legal responsibility to make sure their business is safe from preventable dangers, like stabbings and shootings. This could be fulfilled with security features such as skilled security personnel, functional surveillance cameras, and ample lighting in their parking lots. In fact, the club owner could be liable for damages if safeguards in place during a shooting were proved to be insufficient."

"Too many club shootings occur due to insufficient security or other forms of property security neglect. Victims may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the club owner if negligence played a role in the shooting occurring. Additionally, if violence was an issue at the club or in the area, but the owner failed to add security measures to reduce this risk, they could be deemed liable for a foreseeable crime. It is helpful to consult with an experienced gun injury victim attorney for more information about the legal options for financial compensation available for club shooting victims."
