Can I Sue If I Was Shot in a Bar Parking Lot?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard frequently represents victims in civil lawsuit against bars for shootings. Michael recently discussed the when victims shot in a bar parking lot can file a lawsuit for financial compensation.

"Bar owners have a legal obligation to ensure their property is reasonably safe for both their patrons and employees. In order to minimize the risk of violent crimes, such as shootings and stabbings, a bar should have ample parking lot lighting, plenty of working security cameras, and trained security personnel. If the owner fails to maintain the security of the property and someone is hurt, they may be held liable by a court."

"Victims shot in a bar or bar parking lot should consult with an attorney experienced with filing lawsuits agains negligent businesses for shootings. They are prepared to gather the proper evidence to show the incident was caused by the sports bar owner's negligence. If criminal activity in the area had been increasing, but the owner did not improve security, they could be considered negligent and the crime foreseeable. In cases of negligence, each is different, and the amount of damages that can be recovered varies."
