Financial Compensation For Bar Shooting Victims

Shooting victim lawyer Reed Martens helps bar shooting victims and their families recover financial compensation for the personal and economic difficulties they face. Reed has some general information to add regarding the legal rights of these victims and families:

Shooting investigations must cover all aspects of the shooting. Along with identifying and charging a suspect, it's important to determine if and how the shooting could have been prevented. Some shootings only happen due to negligence by a third party, such as the owner of a bar where the shooting took place.

Bar owners and all other business owners have a legal duty to make sure their premises are safe from preventable dangers, including foreseeable violent crime. If a shooting is deemed foreseeable, it's possible the bar owner could be deemed negligent.

For example, if there had been previous shootings at the same bar, the owner would have a legal duty to attempt to improve safety at the bar through measures like security guards and weapons searches on patrons. If the owner failed to attempt to improve safety, the owner could possibly be deemed negligent. In cases of negligence, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit.
