Legal Rights of Victims Shot at a Bar

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan has experience representing numerous victims of violent crimes that take place on commercial property. Below, Marc shares his insight on the legal options of victims shot at a bar.

“Bar owners have a legal duty to provide a level of safety to the patrons and employees on and around their property. Therefore, property owners should implement adequate security measures in order to protect their patrons. An example of such security measures could include security cameras and hired guards. In the event that a property owner does not provide ample security and someone gets injured on or around the property, they may be deemed liable in a civil lawsuit.”

“If a crime is found to be foreseeable, the bar owner could be held liable. For example, a foreseeable crime could include if crime rates in the area increased, yet they did not implement additional security measures. This could be considered negligence on behalf of the property owner. Victims should understand that in cases of negligence, they may have suitable grounds for a civil lawsuit. If the court finds a victim sustains an injury as a result of inadequate protection on the property, that victim may even qualify for monetary compensation.”
