If you, or someone you know or love, has been injured in a shooting incident in a bar or nightclub, one of the first things you should do for the health of your case is to contact an experienced Florida bar/nightclub shooting attorney. For example, the lawyers at Elstein Legal will discuss the details of your case and will be able to help you through the process of filing an injury claim.
When you go out to the bar or the nightclub for a fun night out, you go there to unwind, decompress and forget about the worries of the workweek. When you’re out with the intention of a great night, your biggest worry should be parking spots and drink prices. The last thing you expect to happen is to be seriously hurt as a victim in a shooting and need emergency medical care. Even being a bystander in a shooting or other altercation can leave serious psychological trauma. Even though these scenarios may be unexpected, in a state like Florida where there is an abundance of world-class nightclubs and bars, there are bound to be some incidents.
Being Injured In A Florida Bar Or Nightclub
When someone owns a bar or nightclub, that owner and the management that operate the club owes the individuals that patronize the establishment a duty of care. This duty requires that they keep the business clean and safe, ensure the premises are in good repair, have measures in place to prevent over-serving customers, and making sure that people entering the business are not bringing in contraband.
Any breach in this duty can open the business management and owners up to legal issues of liability. If they are supposed to keep you safe while you’re in their club and you suffer injuries that result from their negligence, they may be liable for the damages that come from the injuries.
As an example, if you are at a bar where someone has been overserved, the intoxicated patron may start a fight, or if involved in a fight may escalate it with a firearm. The club may be liable for your damages because they failed to prevent someone from bringing in a weapon, and then that person was also over served alcohol.
