Hard Times Sports Bar Shooting (KDVR)

Commerce City, CO – January 3, 2019

Did negligent security contribute to this senseless Commerce City sports bar shooting and are justice and compensation available to the victim?

LOCAL NEWS

Security measures are in question after a man was shot and injured at a Commerce City sports bar Thursday afternoon, January 3, 2019.

According to The Denver Channel, gunfire erupted shortly after 2:30 p.m. “at the Hard Times Sports Bar, located in the 6700 block of E. 80th Ave.”  A male victim was transported to the hospital with injuries. His identity and current condition have not been released.

Commerce City police have not yet revealed a suspect or motive, per KDVR reports.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Bar and nightclub patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the bar and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • What security measures, such as weapons screenings, visible surveillance cameras, and security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?

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 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.

Selecting the right attorney for you or your family is highly important. You must feel confident that the attorney you hire has a complete understanding of the law applicable to your particular case, and has successful experience in handling such cases.

Important: Do not hire a lawyer who has violated the Rules of Professional Conduct!!!

You should not hire an attorney who calls you or visits you unsolicited, or anyone that contacts you directly to offer legal services. This activity is strictly prohibited by Rule 7.3 of the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct, which states as follows:

ABA Center for Professional ResponsibilityA LAWYER “SHALL NOT” CONTACT A PROSPECTIVE CLIENT THROUGH A “LIVE TELEPHONE” OR AN “IN-PERSON” VISIT.

– RULE 7.3, ABA MODEL RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT.

If an attorney, or someone acting on behalf of an attorney, contacts you in this manner, that attorney is in violation of this Rule. This unethical and unprofessional activity on the part of the lawyer is good sign that you should stay away. It is imperative that you are represented by an attorney who is capable of advocating for you within the confines of the law, and an attorney who fails to abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct is probably not the best fit. In fact, any such attorney should be immediately reported to the local State Bar Association. If you have been contacted in such an unsolicited manner, contact us and we’ll assist you in filing a report.

Our Legal Take

Restaurant and parking lot patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Were any attempts made by restaurant management or security to safely and separately remove those involved in the initial altercation from the premises, prior to an escalation to gunfire?
  • What security measures, such as weapons screenings, bright parking lot lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting?

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 restaurant or parking lot owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Herion Chase may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss. Additionally, the other victim of this tragic shooting may 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.
