When Are Bar Owners Considered Liable For Shootings?

Sometimes, bar shootings, stabbings, and other incidents of violence are the result of bar owner negligence. We’ve asked attorney contributor Jeff Gibson to add some information on bar owner liability for injuries and deaths suffered due to violent crime:

Bar owners and all other types of property owners have a legal obligation to keep their properties safe and free of preventable hazards. Having reasonable measures to reduce the risk of violent crime is part of this obligation. When a bar owner fails to keep their customers and employees safe from the risk of violent crime and a shooting or stabbing occurs, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against a business for shooting.

For example, the owner of a bar with a history of violence may be considered negligent for failing to take action to reduce the risk of crime, such as hiring security guards and requiring guests to be searched for weapons.

Assigning property owner liability for a violent crime is a complicated legal process. If you or a loved one was recently wounded or killed during a violent incident at a bar, nightclub, or another business, you can learn more about your legal options by speaking to an experienced crime victim attorney.
