Legal Options of Victims Shot Outside of a Club

Attorney contributor, Ryan Frazier, an experienced violent crimes attorney, has been involved in numerous civil lawsuits by representing victims of shootings and their families. In an interview, Ryan explains the legal rights of victims and their families harmed outside of a club:

"There needs to be a safe and protected environment surrounding both bars and clubs. This legal obligation should be at the forefront of club owners' minds at all times. Security measures like guards, well-lit parking lots, and attentive staff can be used by club management to ensure the protection of patrons. When a customer is injured on a bar's property, a civil lawsuit can deem ownership liable."

"If the court of law deems a crime reasonably foreseeable, a club owner could be considered liable when shootings are involved. If crimes have occurred in a specific area before and property owners chose not to increase security measures, the crime can be viewed as foreseeable. In such cases, the club or bar owner could be deemed negligent. Within negligence cases, victims and their families may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation for damages."
