Can Club Owners Be Sued For Shootings?

Attorney contributor and gun crime lawyer Jeff Gibson helps the victims of preventable violence find the support they need. We’ve asked him to share some thoughts on liability for bar and nightclub shootings and other violent incidents:

Owning a business is a major responsibility, and making sure the business’s premises are safe is a key aspect of this responsibility. The owners of bars, nightclubs, and other businesses have a legal duty to protect their customers and employees from preventable hazards, which includes foreseeable violent crime.

Not all violent crime is foreseeable, but some incidents only occur because of negligent or inadequate security. In cases where a shooting or stabbing may have been prevented by better security standards, ownership could potentially be held liable if the victims of the violence choose to file a lawsuit.

If you or a loved one was injured or killed during a shooting at a bar or nightclub, we recommend speaking with an experienced crime victim lawyer to learn more about your legal options.
