Family Of Victim: Bronx Club's Negligent Security Lead To Death

In July 2012, a 28-year-old man was enjoying himself at Whisper's Lounge, a Bronx night club, when he got into an altercation with another patron. That patron was carrying a concealed firearm that he shot into the stomach of the man, causing fatal injury.

The victim's family is now bringing a wrongful death lawsuit against Whisper's Lounge, claiming that inadequate security contributed to his death.

Whisper's "negligently provided security" and "failed to detect weapons carried by its customers prior to the customers being allowed to enter," states the complaint filed in Bronx Supreme Court.

Inadequate security cases can be difficult to prove, requiring the plaintiff to collect and assemble data about the history of a property. That evidence is used to prove that the property owners knew that there was a crime problem, but didn't take sufficient steps to minimize the danger to patrons.

If you or a loved one has been seriously harmed due to the negligence of a property owner, an experienced New York City inadequate security attorney can help you assess your options.
