Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Martini Lounge?

Attorney contributor, Michael Haggard, represents victims in lounge shooting lawsuits in the state of Florida. As an experienced gun crime lawyer, Michael recently answered, "can I sue for being shot at a martini lounge?"

"Business owners of an establishment, such as a lounge or bar, have a legal duty to make sure their property is reasonably safe for both their patrons and their employees. Trained security bouncers, ample lighting, and functional security cameras are a few measures to reduce the risk of preventable dangers, like shootings. The lounge owner could even be held liable if they failed to provide enough security and a crime took place."

"Too many times, bar and lounge security negligence has led to criminal activity like shootings. If a crime was reasonably foreseeable, victims or their surviving family members might be entitled to compensation available through a civil lawsuit. For instance, if crime rates in the area were on the rise, but the lounge owner did not improve its security, the crime could be seen as predictable. A gun crime lawyer can provide legal advice for victims and their families who may be able to file a lawsuit against the lounge owner if the attorney can show that he neglected to prevent the crime."
