Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan has represented numerous victims of shootings in civil lawsuits. Below, Marc provides insight into the legal rights of victims injured outside a bar to help victims determine whether they have grounds for a lawsuit.
"Bar owners must do their best to protect those on and around their property; it is their legal duty. A bar owner should provide a safe environment for patrons by increasing security measures, for example, cameras, guards, and strong lighting. If these measures are not in place and a patron is injured, the bar owner may be considered liable in a lawsuit."
"In some cases, violent crimes occur as a result of negligence on behalf of a property owner. A bar owner may be considered negligent if the crime is deemed reasonably foreseeable. For example, if crime rates were increasing in the area, but the bar owner did not increase security measures, they could be considered negligent. Victims and their families should secure an experienced violent crime attorney’s services to explore all their legal options. If a victim’s lawyer can prove the bar owner was negligent, then the victim and their family may receive compensation for any damages resulting from the crime."
