Legal Recourse For Victims Injured in Bar Shootings
Attorney contributor Brian Kent crimevictim.Attorney works closely with victims of violent crime in civil cases. We’ve asked him to share some of his legal advice on the options available to bar shooting victims and their families.
Business and other property owners are legally required to guarantee the safety of all of their customers and employees on the premises. They must be able to protect all patrons from preventable dangers and to do this they must provide adequate security on site. Adequate security can include things like video surveillance, enhanced parking lot lighting, and metal detectors, but of course the options are not limited to this list. So when a shooting occurs occurs in or around a place of business, it is important to consider whether or not adequate security was supplied by the property owner. If a bar owner failed to include proper security measures on site, property owner negligence may have played a role in the shooting and the victim could potentially have a valid lawsuit against the owner.
In addition to proving inadequate security on the premises, the victim’s attorney must also be able to prove that the violent crime committed was reasonably foreseeable. This means that the bar owner was made aware of the area’s violent history, but did not take necessary action to mitigate the effects of violence. On these grounds, a victim may also have a lawsuit. Ultimately, however, inadequate security circumstances must accompany a reasonably foreseeable crime in order for a property owner to be considered liable.
If you or a loved one has been wounded or killed in a shooting near a bar, we strongly encourage that you contact an experienced attorney today. You can learn more about your legal options by reaching out to one of our crime victim attorneys now.
