Legal Options Available To Victims Injured in Nightclub Shootings

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan works closely with victims and their families who have been injured or killed in nightclub shootings. Mr. Lenahan has generously shared his insight on the legal options open to these victims.

"Essentially, those who own commercial properties have a legal duty to protect their patrons and employees from any preventable dangers. Providing adequate security is how property owners can fulfill this legal duty. Adequate security may be, but is not limited to, installing video surveillance and hiring security guards. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security on their premises, and a shooting occurs due to their negligence, then he or she may be held liable for the crime", Mr. Lenahan explained.

He went on to say, "In order for a property owner to be held liable for violent crime on their property, the crime must be deemed reasonably foreseeable in addition to the inadequate security. For example, if a shooting occurs at a nightclub with a previous history of violent crime, yet no security advancements were established, then the shooting may be considered reasonably foreseeable. Therefore, a violent crime victim's lawyer must prove that the crime occurred due to negligent security, and that the crime was reasonably foreseeable."

If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a nightclub shooting, you can learn more about the legal options available to you by discussing your case with an experienced crime victim attorney.
