Strip Club Shooting In Atlanta…Again

Strip Club Shooting Atlanta

People know Atlanta as a strip club mecca and have for a long, long time.  Anyone who lives in Atlanta, and a whole lot of people who visit, knows what the city thinks about its high-heeled rump shakers.  Sadly, though, strip club shooting is a frequent enough occurrence that we are not surprised when we hear about it.

Bad Start for Atlanta Strip Clubs in 2018

Barely into 2018, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that a man got shot while in the parking lot of a midtown strip club.  As a personal injury lawyer, I know one question that needs to be answered is whether security was adequate at the strip club.  In other words, given the inherent danger we know to exist at strip clubs, was enough security in place.  Certainly, this latest victim will want answers.

I must confess that for a period of time in my career, I represented a well-known strip club in Atlanta.  So I know, firsthand, what strip clubs need to do to protect their customs.  I also know that they all too often don’t do what’s right.  This is why, despite knowing it’s not the safest place, one cannot blame the victim.

Are Strip Clubs Responsible

As consumers, we have a reasonable expectation of safety.  We know that businesses can’t guarantee our safety.  But we also know that they need to take reasonable steps when the environment is dangerous.  If they don’t, they must at least warn customers about the dangers.  Especially in their parking lots.

Too often, strip club shootings occur because there is an insufficient security presence in the parking lot.  How often do you hear about strip club shootings that occur inside the strip club?  Not very.  That’s because the clubs do a good job of protecting their most valuable assets—the dancers—inside the club.  Well, premises liability and negligent security law demand that business protect their customers in the parking lot as they protect their workers inside.  Sadly, many do not.

When the victim of a strip club shooting survives, he or she has the right to hire a lawyer to investigate the security at the club.  In the unfortunate circumstance where the victim does not survive, his or her family has the right to seek counsel.  I firmly believe lawsuits are the greatest avenue we have to compel safety.  And that’s by hitting businesses where it hurts: in the bank account.  Strip clubs, like any business, want to protect their wallets. Lawsuits teach them to do that by making sure customers are safe and, therefore, won’t have reason to sue them.

I was very satisfied with the service

If you have ever experienced injury from a car accident then you are aware of how it can change your life physically and financially. I was so relieved to have Troy Kiber represent me. He treated me like a friend and not just another case on his calendar. He explained the process to me clearly and allowed me to make decisions based on what was best for me not just what would quickly resolve the case. I truly appreciate him for his thoroughness. I was very satisfied with the service I received and pleasantly surprised at the outcome.

I highly recommend the Dixon Firm

I have to say I am very impressed with The Dixon Firm. My case was very different then most injury cases because it involved my son and an injury at school. Most lawyers I looked into hiring were too afraid to take on my case. But not the Dixon firm! I was given a chance to be heard and Rod and his amazing staff and lawyers took on my case. Daniel Adamson was my lawyer and he communicated with me through it all! I was a little concerned with the pandemic that I’d be waiting forever but this was not the case, Daniel stayed on my case and worked diligently and kept in contact with me every step of the way. I highly recommend the Dixon Firm and ask for Daniel, he will not disappoint! Thanks Daniel for everything you did for me and my son!
