Legal Recourse for Bar Shooting Victims and Their Families

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents crime victims and their families in civil lawsuits. We've asked Marc to share some of his thoughts on the legal options available to bar shooting victims and their families:

Bar owners have many responsibilities, but safety should always be the most important one. These business owners have a duty to keep their customers, employees, and other visitors reasonably safe from preventable violent crime by having adequate security standards in place. In the aftermath of a bar or nightclub shooting, it's important to determine if the shooting could have been prevented by better security standards.

For example, if the bar where the shooting occurred had a history of violence but ownership made no safety improvements, such as hiring security guards, the bar owner could possibly be considered negligent for failing to prevent the shooting. In cases involving bar owner negligence, bar shooting victims and their families may have a case for a lawsuit.
