Visiting a bar or nightclub should be a fun and safe experience for all involved. Unfortunately, as Florida residents know all too well, shootings can and do occur in these environments sometimes. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and other such losses if you’re ever hurt in a Miami bar or nightclub shooting. Meet with a personal injury lawyer at Miami’s Elstein Legal to discuss your options.
Seeking Compensation after a Miami Bar or Nightclub Shooting
Not all Florida nightclub shootings are hate crimes involving shooters targeting anyone and everyone on the premises. It’s actually more common for Miami bar and nightclub shootings to involve shooters targeting specific individuals. When they do, they often harm others caught in the crossfire. Additionally, bar fights and similar acts of violence can also cause injury to others. Those who survive may be left with medical bills, they might no longer be able to return to work, they’ll likely struggle with anxiety, and much more.
While the shooters themselves are naturally those most directly responsible for causing harm to victims in Miami bar and nightclub shootings, they may not be the only responsible parties. The bar or nightclub’s owners may also be somewhat responsible if a shooter got into the bar due to inadequate security.
Bar and nightclub owners need to ensure their security equipment is effective and properly-maintained, their security personnel are trained, enough security personnel to keep the premises safe are working on any given night, and their overall security procedures are adequate. Victims can seek compensation from ownership if they’re hurt in Miami bar or nightclub shootings because ownership neglected this duty. They may also seek compensation in similar circumstances, such as being injured at the hands of an overzealous bouncer.
Working with a Personal Injury Attorney
Securing the compensation you deserve if you’re harmed in a Miami bar or nightclub shooting (or similar incident) requires proving the incident resulted from some form of negligence. You also need to accurately calculate how much compensation you deserve by accounting for all your losses, some of which may not be financial in nature.
These are tasks a Miami bar and nightclub shooting lawyer can handle for you. By coordinating with a personal injury law firm in Miami, you’ll have representation from experts who have the resources necessary to conduct an investigation and negotiate effectively on your behalf. Allowing your Miami bar and nightclub shooting attorney to handle the process of pursuing compensation will also give you the time you need to focus on your recovery in the aftermath of a very traumatic experience.
