Legal Recourse For Victims of Bar Shootings

Bobby Thompson is an attorney contributor for the Legal Herald and he has spent much of his career focusing on violent crimes. He offered to share his comments on what legal options there are for bar shooting victims:

“Bars have a duty to their patrons to provide a safe environment and to protect against reasonably foreseeable risks. For example, providing adequate parking lot lighting to deter parking lot robberies, or installing metal detectors to reduce the risk of a shooting on the property. If a shooting may have been prevented by the bar then there is a possibility that bar can be held negligent. Shooting victims or their families can file a lawsuit against a bar in these situations and may be able to receive damages depending on the court’s ruling.”
