Nightclub Employee Injured in Bar Fight Shooting 

According to KSAT, a nightclub worker was shot after a fight broke out amongst patrons at the Heat nightclub located at 1500 N Main Ave, San Antonio, TX 78212.

At approximately 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, December 19, 2021, a fight broke out inside the nightclub. After both groups exited the nightclub, the fights continued outside. Security personnel broke up the fight but shortly after, a car drove by, shooting toward the club's front. An employee delivering a bottle of water to the security guards was struck by a bullet in the leg. One of the security guards shot back at the shooter, but they drove away. 

Police are still investigating for possible identification of the vehicle and shooter.

Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Nightclub?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents victims of nightclub shootings and stabbings in private civil litigation. As an experienced gun crimes injury lawyer, Marc recently discussed when shooting victims could sue a nightclub.

"Nightclub and bar owners have a greater obligation to provide security for their patrons and employees. They have a legal duty to comply with basic premises liability laws. Security measures can vary from having well-lit outside areas to properly trained security guards. When a nightclub owner fails to provide security for the safety of everyone on their property, a civil lawsuit may be filed under the guidance of an experienced legal representative."

"An experienced gun crimes injury lawyer will take on the duty of proving negligence on behalf of a nightclub owner. They will also prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. This could include a crime that occurred after an owner failed to increase security while knowing violence and crime was increasing in the area. If the court determines the nightclub owner was negligent, financial compensation may be awarded to the victim of the crime. Victims of nightclub shootings should discuss their particular options with an experienced gun crimes injury lawyer."
