Legal Options For Victims of Bar Violence

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan helps the victims of preventable violent crime get the justice and financial compensation they deserve. Here is his legal commentary on the legal rights of bar shooting victims and their families.

According to premises liability laws, all property owners have a legal obligation to keep their premises free of preventable dangers. These laws are often cited in personal injury lawsuits, such as injuries incurred during a slip and fall on a slippery sidewalk outside of a business. But premises liability can also apply to shootings, stabbings, and other incidents that occur at businesses, including bars and nightclubs.

In some cases of bar violence, the incident may have been preventable if it weren’t for negligence on the part of the property owner. For example, bars with a history of violent incidents or calls to the police can take preventative measures to reduce the risk of violent crime, such as hiring security guards and conducting weapons searches before customers can enter the bar. A failure to take preventative measures against foreseeable violent crime often constitutes negligence.

If you or a loved one has been wounded or killed during a violent incident at a bar or nightclub and you’d like to learn more about your legal options, we advise discussing your case with an experienced gun crimes injury lawyer.
