Can a Bar Be Held Liable for a Bar Shooting?

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau often represents victims of bar and lounge shootings. He shared his experience as a shooting victim lawyer to explain when a negligent bar can be held liable for a bar shooting.

"Bar owners have a hefty responsibility to keep the security of their property as a top priority. In order to ensure their staff and customers are safe from preventable crimes, such as shootings or stabbings, they need to adhere to a safety plan. Knowing that shootings and stabbings frequently take place at bars and lounges due to alcohol consumption, they must implement safety precautions. These may include ample lighting, working security cameras, and trained security bouncers. If a bar owner neglects the security of the property, they could be held liable in a lawsuit."

"If a victim is shot and injured, or worse, killed, it is necessary to determine if the owner could have prevented the shooting. Some bar violence occurs as a result of insufficient security or another type of negligence. Furthermore, the crime could be deemed foreseeable if previous incidents had occurred at the bar, yet the owner failed to increase security. Adding metal detectors and conducting coat checks could reduce the risk of violent crimes. Victims, or their surviving families, should consult with an experienced shooting victim lawyer to learn more about their legal right to compensation."
