Can You Sue For Being Shot Outside of a Bar?

Attorney contributor Phil Edwards represents bar shooting victims along with their families in civil lawsuits. Phil helps victims get the financial compensation they deserve. Recently we asked him if you can sue for being shot outside of a bar; below is his response.

"Bars and nightclubs are a hotspot for violent crimes. They must take the security of their patrons and staff seriously. To do this, they should have a certain level of safety measures in place. These can include security cameras, trained security guards, and even adequate lighting in the parking lots. With property security being a legal obligation for all property owners to reduce preventable injuries, bar owners may be held liable in a court of law if they fail to uphold it."

"When a bar shooting occurs, and victims are injured or killed, law enforcement should thoroughly investigate the crime. Along with identifying and arresting the shooter, it's essential to analyze the bar's safety measures to determine if the bar shooting could have been prevented. Many times, bar shootings could have been prevented if not for inadequate security or safety negligence. In cases involving negligence, bar shooting victims and their families may have sufficient cause to file a lawsuit. Victims can explore their legal options by consulting with an experienced bar shooting victim lawyer."
