Can You and Your Business be Held Liable for an Active Shooter Incident at Your Establishment?

Updated: Jun 9, 2022

In 2021, businesses open to pedestrian traffic, are the most common places for active shooter incidents. Retail locations, bars, offices, and restaurants are examples of businesses of this type of category. In a time where mass killings have become more prominent, understanding how this type of incident could potentially affect your business is detrimental.


How Can my Business be Held Accountable?

1. Foreseeability

In 2001, active shooter situations were not common. Today, active shooter situations are more common than ever based on the 20 Year Report conducted by the FBI. This means the risk for your business to be attacked is higher.


2. Proper or Adequate Security Not Provided

Understanding what to look for and do during active shooter situations is key. Not having your employees/ staff trained on how to react in that situation can be hurtful to your business.
