Can Victims of Bar Shootings and Stabbings File Lawsuits?

Legal commentator Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney has the following thoughts on the legal options of violent crime victims:

In some cases, violent incidents like shooting and stabbings at bars, nightclubs, and other public places could have been prevented. Property owners have a legal obligation to keep their premises safe from any foreseeable hazards, including violent crime. In cases where a property owner is aware that their premises are susceptible to violent crime but fail to take precautions to reduce the risk of such crime, the victim could have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner.

Premises liability cases are extremely complex and determining if a property owner is liability depends on the unique circumstances of a particular case. Victims of violent crimes who are curious about their legal options can learn more by discussing their case with an experienced crime victim attorney.
