Legal Recourse for Victims and Families of Bar Shootings

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan represents victims of violent crimes along with their families. Kevin helps families and victims of violent crimes to decide if they should take legal action. In his commentary below, he answers questions such as "Can I sue a bar for being shot?

"Bars and other nighttime establishments have a greater risk of violent crimes, such as shootings and stabbings. The safety of the patrons and staff is the legal responsibility of the bar owner. If they fail to maintain a standard of safety precautions, they can be held liable for the crimes and injuries on their property. This safety plan might include high-tech security cameras, adequate light throughout the establishment, and trained security guards."

"There are several options available to the family members following a bar shooting death. Victims may seek restitution for the perpetrator after conviction in a criminal court. However, this may not be enough for expenses such as funerals and others caused by the unexpected death. Filing a private civil suit may be the key to compensation for the damages ensued."

"Victims may have options during a private civil suit, including wrongful death or negligent security of the bar owner. An experienced gun crimes injury lawyer will guide the victim or the family to choose the best legal actions. They will also need to prove the bar owner was negligent and failed to offer preventative security measures. Family members filing a wrongful death suit may bring a claim against either the perpetrator or property owner to seek financial compensation. This could help cover expenses such as medical bills and even the loss of income on behalf of the loved one."
