Laurence Banville, an attorney who provides commentary for the Legal Herald, has experience representing gun injury victims in New York. Laurence assists bar shooting victims and their families in private civil lawsuits. During a recent conversation, Laurence answered a common question, "Can I sue for being shot at a bar?"
"Bar owners, like other property owners, have a legal obligation to keep their establishments safe from preventable dangers, such as stabbings and shootings. It's crucial that these owners provide a level of security features like trained security personnel, surveillance cameras, and well-lit parking lots. In fact, the bar owner could be held accountable for damages if no safeguards were in place during a shooting."
"Sadly, some bar shootings occur as a result of insufficient security or other forms of property owner neglect. Victims, or the surviving family members of those killed in bar shootings, may have reasonable grounds to initiate a lawsuit against the bar owner if it can be proven that negligence played a role. Additionally, if the area was prone to violence, but the owner failed to add security to reduce the risk, they could be deemed liable for a foreseeable crime. Speaking with an experienced gun injury victim attorney can help victims understand more about their legal options for financial compensation."
