Did negligent security contribute to this tragic loss of life and are justice and compensation available to the victim’s family?

LOCAL NEWS

A man is dead after being found shot at a Ridgway, Pennsylvania bar Saturday night, May 4, 2019.

According to WJACtv.com, “[p]olice responded to a call about shots fired in Elk County…a 42-year-old male was involved in a shooting at Cully’s bar in Ridgway.”  The news story reports “surveillance footage showed a man approach another man in the bar and take what looked like a swing at him. Then, a couple of shots were heard.”  BradfordEra.com is reporting that the victim “was taken for treatment to Penn Highlands Elk, and he was pronounced dead at 5:01 a.m.”

The investigation is ongoing according to media outlets.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

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

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • Were security measures, such as adequate lighting, surveillance cameras, or security personnel, in place to deter crime and protect the victim and others at the time of the shooting?
  • Were any efforts made by the bar management to de-escalate the initial altercation and remove all those involved safely and separately from the 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 owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.

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’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

  • What security measures, such as guarded-entry, monitored surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and visible security patrols were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Bartnick 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 motel owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Sean Bartnick’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death. 

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 Sean Bartnick‘s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
