Justice For Fatal Bar Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced shooting victim lawyer who represents victims injured in violent crimes. During an interview, Brian discussed how the surviving family could seek justice for their loved ones killed in deadly bar shootings.

"Unfortunately, alcohol-related violence is a common problem for bars. Bar owners are legally responsible for providing ample security and safety for their staff and patrons. Basic security measures can include trained security bouncers, well-lit parking lots, and working security cameras. If a bar owner fails to provide security in order to reduce the risk of preventable dangers, they could be held accountable."

"Furthermore, if the bar was known to have an issue with violence, but the owner did not increase the property's security, they could be deemed negligent. The surviving family of a fatally shot victim should consult with an experienced violent crimes attorney to guide them in recovering compensation."
