Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Bar

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents victims of shootings in civil lawsuits. Below, Michael provided insight on the rights of victims of a shooting at a bar.

“Bar owners have a legal obligation to protect those on or around their property to the best of their ability. To ensure patrons’ safety, bar owners should implement security measures. Examples of security include cameras and security guards. If security is not provided, and someone is injured on the bar’s property, the owner may be considered liable.”

“A property owner could be considered liable if the court of law finds the crime foreseeable. An example of a foreseeable crime is if previous crimes recently occurred on or around the bar property, and the owner made no security improvements. In such cases, victims should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the bar owner. The victim and their family may qualify for monetary compensation if the court decides in their favor.”
