The Event Itself
A concert at a motorcycle club in Gardena California ended in gunfire on November 3rd. The resulting shootout left two people seriously injured as a result. According to reports by eyewitnesses, the shooting began at around midnight. The crowd became frantic, which posed a significant threat to more than just those caught in the path of the gunfire. Local authorities arrived shortly after, witnessing a concert thrown into chaos. The two people who were shot are reported to have suffered non-life-threatening injuries. However, others were injured as a result of the following fights scattered throughout the event. Police are still investigating the event; however, it is commonly understood that someone shouldn’t have been able to walk in with a weapon had the concert security performed adequately.

However, when moving forward with a personal injury lawsuit, it is important that those injured by this event seek legal representation from a skilled attorney experienced in fighting for cases of this nature.

Filing A Suit Against A Security Company
Security companies are expected to provide services that protect event goers and performers from the dangers of security breaches. A security breach could mean anything from fights at events too, regarding this article, an event goer bringing a firearm where they’d otherwise be prohibited. As such, the security guard company responsible for allowing a concert attendee to bring a weapon can be held responsible for the damages. However, there are some legal hurdles involved in suing security guards and greater security guard companies which can be incredibly challenging to take on alone. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you seek legal representation from an attorney experienced in fighting for those who have been injured as a result of the negligence or misconduct of security guards and security guard companies.

One major aspect of these kinds of lawsuits is the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is defined as a time limit an injured party has to bring their case to court. If the injured party fails to file their claim within the specified time, they could face their lawsuit being dismissed from court entirely. The statute of limitations tends to change depending on what state the injury takes place. For example, in the State of California, a plaintiff has two years from the date of the injury to bring their case to court. It is also important to note that there are some exceptions to the statute, which can also vary between states. This is precisely where a skilled attorney would be of significant use, as they can help you understand the statute that influence your state and whether or not these exceptions apply to your case.

Victims of this incident should also consider the evidence needed to support your claim. For this incident, in particular, there is plenty of video footage detailing the events leading up to, during, and after the shooting. As well as video footage other evidence such as photographs detailing your specific damages, eyewitness accounts of others who attended the event, and medical records detailing the injuries that you suffered. This evidence can then be used to support the critical components to a claim of negligence.

For every personal injury lawsuit, it is crucial that you can effectively prove the negligence of the party responsible for the damages. In this case, victims of this shooting should be able to prove that the security staff at the event failed to protect event goers adequately, and relied on law enforcement to protect those there. Listed below are the essential elements that victims should be able to prove with supporting evidence:

  • Duty: The plaintiff (injured or damaged party) must be able to show that the defendant (security guard company and security staff) owed a legal duty to the plaintiff under the particular circumstances of the case.
  • Breach: The plaintiff must be able to show that the defendant breached said legal duty through specific actions or failure to act appropriately
  • Causation: The plaintiff must be able to prove that the defendant’s actions or lack thereof caused the plaintiff’s injuries
  • Damages: The plaintiff must be able to show that they endured some specific damages. This can usually be demonstrated through the presentation of medical records, a loss of wages, or a loss of potential income.

Having substantial evidence, and a credible claim of negligence can play a vital role in the outcome of your case.
