Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Lounge? 

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville is a violent crime victim attorney representing bar shooting victims in civil lawsuits. Laurence helps victims and their families seek justice for shootings caused by negligence. He has recently responded to the common question, Can I sue for being shot at a lounge?

"Bar and lounge security is a crucial responsibility for all bar owners, especially when these businesses might be at a higher risk for violence. The property owner's legal obligation is to offer preventative measures to reduce the risk of violence, making sure their customers and patrons are safe. Too often, shootings and stabbings occur at lounges due to inadequate security or other forms of negligence. Security measures might involve hiring security guards, installing video monitoring cameras, and having sufficient lighting around the property. In negligent cases, the victim and their families may have reasons to pursue a civil lawsuit."

"When a violent crime occurs at a bar or lounge, a full investigation must take place. The crime's circumstances should be investigated, including property security and whether additional protection could have prevented the shooting. If the area had seen an uptick in crime and violence, the property owner would be obligated to increase their security. A bar or lounge owner's failure to provide adequate security allows them to be held accountable in a court of law. Victims should consult with an experienced crime victim lawyer to explore their best options for legal recourse."
