Nightclub-Bar-Scene-300x192Nightclubs are often targeted for criminal activity given late hours of operation, typically low levels of lighting, and a frequent presence of alcohol. By law, bar and nightclub owners are required to protect their patrons from any foreseeable harm.

The D.C. Metro Police Department urges nightclub owners to protect their patrons by implementing staff training and security precautions:

  • Bouncers, severs and sellers must be vigilant and check all IDs. If a patron does not look 40, check his or her ID.
  • Be responsible servers—do not serve alcohol to a intoxicated person.
  • Promote responsible consumption.
  • Discourage loitering in front of establishments.

Victims of Nightclub Violence and Sexual Assault: Know Your Rights

If you are a victim of sexual assault get help. Call the police, a friend, or a rape crisis center. If possible, save your clothes, don’t shower or brush teeth, and seek medical attention immediately. If you have a lapse of memory, or wake up in a strange place and feel you might have been a victim of a sexual assault, contact a local law enforcement agency immediately.  Get medical attention as soon as possible.

Bar and nightclub patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises of the establishment they are visiting. By law, property owners are required to protect all patrons legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should a nightclub owner fail in this critical responsibility, they may be held civilly liable for any injuries or wrongful deaths which occur as a consequence.

Could this Myrtle Beach bar shooting have been prevented?

Local News

A shooting outside a Myrtle Beach bar reportedly left a 32-year-old man critically injured Saturday morning, April 28, 2018.

According to MyHorryNews.com, the shooting occurred shortly after 2:00 a.m. in the “back parking lot” of “Remedies Bar and Grill, located at 4803 U.S. 17-Bypass South.” The victim was transported to the hospital in “critical” injuries. His identity and current condition have not been released. Police are still searching for suspects, per Myrtle Beach Online reports.

The property was the subject of a prior shooting and assault investigation in October 2015, per WMBF News reports.

    Recent crime reports, from Spotcrime.com, reveal criminal activity in the surrounding area. What additional security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were implemented by the bar owner following media reports of prior crime on and near property? 

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the bar owner or managment failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his injuries.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
