Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Sports Bar?

Attorney contributor to the Legal Herald, Brian Kent, often represents victims shot at sports bars in civil litigation. Recently he provided various legal options available for shooting victims to obtain financial compensation.

"Bars and sport bar owners have a legal responsibility to provide security for their patrons and staff. They are bound by premises liability laws which are fairly the same state to state. A sports bar can reduce the risk of preventable violent crime, such as shootings, by having ample lighting in parking lots, security cameras, and trained security guards. However, if the sports bar owner fails to maintain the security of the property for their staff and customers, a private civil lawsuit may be filed under the guidance of a legal representative."

"An experienced violent crime attorney will work to prove the incident occurred due to the negligence on behalf of a sports bar owner. They need to show that the shooting was reasonably foreseeable. If a sports bar owner failed to improve security despite knowing about the elevated criminal activity in the area, they could be deemed negligent. If the court finds the shooting foreseeable and the sports bar owner negligent, compensation may be awarded to the victim. Each incident is unique, leaving victims to recover different amounts depending on the damages accrued."
