Can a Bar Be Sued For a Bar Shooting?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson helps victims seek justice through bar shooting lawsuits in California. Bobby recently discussed when a bar could be held liable for a shooting injury.

"Bars have a legal obligation to keep their property safe for the bar staff and patrons. Trained security guards, ample parking lot lighting, and working security cameras are just some of the things that can help reduce the risk of violence. The bar owner can be held responsible for injuries or deaths if they fail to keep their establishment safe."

"In fact, bar owners can be held responsible for bar shootings in various ways. Aside from failing to provide adequate security, they could be held liable if they fail to diffuse an argument as it starts or fail to make necessary improvements to security due to an increase in crime. Victims of bar shootings may have grounds to file a lawsuit for compensation if negligence is a factor. The victim can speak with a gun violence attorney to determine if a civil lawsuit is their best course of legal action."
