Attorney Contributor Bobby Thompson is an experienced gun injury attorney in California. Bobby represents bar shooting victims along with their families in civil lawsuits against negligent bar owners. Bobby recently explained how families could file a lawsuit for victims fatally shot at a bar.
"The property owners must prioritize bar and nightclub security. Bar patrons and employees should be kept safe from preventable dangers, including foreseeable violent crime. Too often, fights, shootings, and stabbings happen inside and around bars across the country. Taking this into account, the bar owner should ensure that they have proper security measures to reduce the risk of violence. This could range from hiring trained security guards to having security cameras throughout the property. Any means possible to deter violent crimes, like shootings, should be in place. If a bar owner fails to provide the standard safety precautions, they could be found liable in a court of law."
"In the event of a bar shooting, the victims and their families should be aware of their legal rights. Many times shootings happen due to bar owner negligence, such as failing to improve security standards after an increase in prior incidents. In cases of neglect, bar shooting victims, as well as their families, could have a valid case for a civil lawsuit. Families of victims fatally shot at a bar should seek the guidance of an experienced gun injury attorney."
