Legal Rights of Victims Shot at a Bar

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan has worked with numerous victims of violent crimes on commercial property. Below, Marc shares his thoughts on the legal options of victims shot at a bar.

“Bar owners are legally obligated to uphold the safety of patrons on or around their property. Therefore, property owners should implement security measures to protect patrons. An example of security measures includes cameras and guards. If a property owner does not implement ample security and someone is injured on or around the bar’s property, the commercial property owner may be deemed liable in a lawsuit.”

“If a crime is deemed foreseeable, the bar owner may be found liable. For example, a crime may be deemed foreseeable if crime rates in the area were increasing. In such cases, a property owner may be deemed negligent if they do not implement additional security measures. Victims should know in cases of negligence that they may have grounds for a lawsuit. If the court decides a victim was injured as a result of inadequate protection on the property, the victim may qualify for monetary compensation.”
