Legal Recourse for Bar Shooting Victims and Their Families

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan helps victims of preventable crime find justice through the civil court system. We've asked him to discuss the legal options available to bar shooting victims and their families:

Customers and employees of bars and nightclubs deserve a reasonable level of security, which can reduce the risk of violent crime. In fact, the owners of these establishments have a legal duty to make sure their properties are reasonably safe and secure. But sometimes, inadequate security and other types of property owner negligence open the door for an otherwise preventable violent crime to occur. When this happens, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit.

For example, if a bar had a history of violence but no measures were in place to prevent people from bringing weapons inside and a shooting occurred, those injured and the families of those killed in the shooting may have the right to file a lawsuit against the property owner.

If you or a loved one has recently become a victim of a bar shooting, you may have options for legal recourse through the civil courts. Each case is different, so in order to understand your family's options, it's best to discuss your case with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
