Filing Lawsuits Bar Employees Injured or Killed In Bar Shooting

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville works to secure justice for victims of violent crime in the state of New York. During a recent discussion, Laurence highlighted when bar shooting victims and their surviving family members can file a lawsuit against a bar.

"Bar owners are responsible for taking reasonable steps to prevent their employees or patrons from becoming victims of preventable dangers, such as shootings. These property owners should understand the heightened risk of violence due to the consumption of alcohol on the premises. To combat these risks, they should have hired security, such as bouncers, to check each patron entering the establishment. Additionally, maintaining working security cameras and having ample lighting will deter many crimes from occurring. If a bar has a history of issues with gun violence, they have a legal obligation to increase their security with measures such as metal detectors and coat checks. If a bar owner fails to uphold its commitment, it can be held liable in a lawsuit."

"The level of security provided by the bar owner is a relevant factor when analyzing if a shooting was a result of negligent security. Victims or their surviving family members may seek justice by filing a civil lawsuit against the negligent bar owner for financial compensation. Victims or their families can learn more about their available legal options by consulting with a bar shooting victim attorney."
