Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Club

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan, an experienced violent crime lawyer, works with victims of shootings in civil lawsuits. Marc has shared insight on the legal right of victims of shootings.

Property owners, such as clubs and bars, have a legal obligation to protect the patrons on and around their property. To ensure patrons’ safety, the club owner must provide ample security. Examples of proper security measures could include security cameras, sufficient lighting, and even hired security guards. If a victim is involved in a shooting at a club, they could question whether adequate security measures were provided. If it was not provided during the crime, the victim and their family might have grounds for a civil lawsuit for negligence.”

In order to file a civil lawsuit, the victims’ lawyer must prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. For example, if the area's crime rates had increased recently, but the owner did not improve security measures, and a crime occurs, it is considered foreseeable. In such instances, the owner may be deemed negligent and liable for victims’ injuries. In cases of negligence, the victim should secure a violent crime lawyer’s services to better understand their legal rights, which may include compensation for the damages.”
