Can Bar Owners Be Held Liable For Failing To Protect Against Crime?

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville specializes in helping crime victims find justice. He would like to discuss some general points on property owner liability when a violent incident happens in a bar or nightclub:

For responsible business owners, making sure that their customers are safe from preventable dangers is a priority. All property owners are legally obligated to keep their premises reasonably safe from any foreseeable dangers, including violent crime. While not all violent incidents are foreseeable, some of these incidents occur in areas or venues where there is a well-known risk of violent crime.

In some cases, negligent security is to blame for failing to prevent violence. For instance, a bar located in an area with high rates of violent crime could take measures to reduce crime at their establishment, such as hiring security staff and conducting searches.

Additionally, sometimes customers are served too much alcohol and become violent as a result. Sometimes, a dram shop lawsuit can be brought against a bar owner for bar fights, shootings, and stabbings.

If you or someone you love recently became the victim of violent crime at a bar or nightclub, we advise discussing your legal options with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
