Shootings In Clubs, Bars And Other Establishments
There are many places in and around East Orange, New Jersey, where people can go to have a good time. Unfortunately, being in the wrong place and the wrong time can lead to serious injury or death, particularly when things escalate and a shooting occurs.
From the upkeep of the facility to the ability to control fights and conflict, the bar owner must take precautions to ensure that patrons who are invited in will not be hurt while enjoying themselves.
From fights and brawls to escalation that involves shootings or weapons, people are hurt every weekend in New Jersey bars. Whether or not criminal charges have been filed against the person who hurt you, the owner has a responsibility to keep you safe.
Speak To An Experienced Negligent Security Attorney
At the law firm of Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP, we represent people who have been hurt through violence at bars and clubs. This includes the person who was directly hurt by the violent individual, as well as innocent bystanders hurt in the process.
Owners must have a plan for when violence breaks out. This should include hiring enough security guards and providing a sufficient amount of training to know how to contain and diffuse the fight to protect patrons. When necessary, there should also be metal detectors to prevent guns and weapons from being brought into the bar.
We will also evaluate how quickly the police were called and if the fight was handled in an efficient and proper manner.
