Going out to the bar or club with your friends is a time to enjoy yourselves. You never get ready to go out giving much thought to your safety during your evening. You expect to be able to go out, unwind from the week, have a few drinks and dance with your friends. On nights like this, your biggest worry should be where to park where you won’t pay an arm and a leg, and which club is going to have the best drinks at the best prices. Most times, your evening plans go off without a hitch, but accidents do happen and in a club that is not well-managed, there are increased chances for injuries.
As the customer of your favorite South Florida nightclub, the property owner, staff, and management have a legal obligation to keep the premises clean and safe for you to enjoy without the threat of injury. If any of those parties demonstrate negligence in this duty, they may be liable for the injuries and losses that result from related incidents.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a South Florida nightclub shooting, it can result not only in serious physical injuries but also severe psychological trauma. Even though unexpected, in an area like South Florida that has world-class nightclub entertainment, there are bound to be some incidents that happen anyway. One of the first things you should do after being involved in such an incident is to contact a local South Florida nightclub shooting law firm like Elstein Legal.
Getting Injured In A South Florida Bar Or Nightclub
The duty that nightclub operators owe you to provide a safe environment is the duty of care. This duty encompasses keeping the area clean, keeping the premises in good repair, preventing the overserving of alcohol to customers, and ensuring that no weapons or other contraband are brought into the club. If they are supposed to keep you safe and you suffer injuries that should have been prevented by their duty, they may be liable for your damages.
As an example, if you are at a club where people have been over-served, it can create a dangerous situation. If a fight then breaks out and you are hurt as a result, then the people who should have stopped the bartenders from over-serving can be liable for the injuries and damages of all the victims involved.
