When Are Nightclub Owners Liable For Shootings?

Gun crime lawyer, Laurence Banville, helps the victims of preventable shootings get justice and support in cases involving property owner negligence. Here are some of his thoughts on nightclub owner liability for shootings and other violent incidents:

Owning property comes with many responsibilities, least of which is making sure that the property is safe from preventable dangers. Nightclub owners and other property owners have a legal duty to guard against the risk of foreseeable violent crime. When a violent incident occurs due to a failure to meet this legal duty, that property owner could potentially be held liable for damages by the victims and their families.

In some cases, property owner negligence like inadequate security plays a role in failing to prevent a violent crime.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed during a violent incident at a bar or nightclub, you can learn more about your legal options by speaking to one of our experienced crime victim attorneys.
