Attorney Contributor Bobby Thompson is a shooting victim lawyer who files lawsuits in California. Bobby often represents bar shooting victims and the surviving family members of those fatally shot. He recently detailed when families of victims fatally shot in a club could file a lawsuit.
"The security of bars and nightclubs must be prioritized by bar owners. Preventable threats, such as stabbings and shootings, should be reduced through a proper safety plan. This could include having sufficient lighting on the property, hiring trained security, and installing numerous security cameras. Knowing that fights, shootings, and stabbings are common in and around bars across the country, bar owners are legally responsible for minimizing the risk with preventative security. However, if a bar owner fails to provide the required safety safeguards and someone is injured or killed, they may be held accountable in court."
"Victims and their families should be aware of their legal rights following a bar shooting. Many times shootings happen due to bar owner negligence, such as failing to improve security standards despite being aware of an increase in crime or violence in the area. In cases of neglect, bar shooting victims and the surviving members of those killed could have a valid case for a civil lawsuit. Families and bar shooting victims should seek the guidance of an experienced shooting victim lawyer."
