Is a Business Liable if I Was Stabbed in Their Parking Lot?

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville is an experienced stabbing victim attorney who helps stabbing victims recover financial compensation. Laurence has shared some vital information on the liability of commercial property owners for stabbings that occur on their properties. 

"Commercial business owners, like malls, should make it a priority to ensure their properties are reasonably safe for both patrons and staff. In fact, protecting against foreseeable violent crime, like stabbings, is a legal obligation to property owners. Malls should implement standard safety preventatives such as security cameras, well-lit parking lots, and patrolling security officers. Some incidents of violent crimes could have been prevented if a sufficient level of security had been maintained."

"If the property or its surrounding location had a history of violence, the property owner would have a legal obligation to improve the property's safety to reduce the occurrence of additional violence. This could include hiring additional security guards. If the commercial property is found to have had inadequate security during a violent crime, like a stabbing, the owner could be deemed negligent in a lawsuit. In negligence cases, stabbing victims and their families could have reasonable grounds for a lawsuit against the liable bar owner. Victims are advised to seek the guidance of an experienced stabbing victim attorney to learn more about their legal options following a stabbing in a parking lot."
