Legal Options Open to Victims of Parking Lot Shootings and Their Families
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of www.crimevictim.Attorney represents parking lot shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits.
“Commercial property owners are bound by the law to ensure the safety of their patrons and employees. One way to achieve this is by providing adequate security on the premises – which could include anything from a parking lot to a restaurant. Video surveillance, parking authority figures, metal detectors and other things of this nature may constitute as adequate security. If a property owner acts negligently and fails to address adequate security measures, then he or she may be held partially liable for a shooting or another violent act that occurs on his or her property,” Mr. Kent explains.
But Kent also adds that “inadequate security is not enough for a victim to form a lawsuit against a property owner.” “A victim’s lawyer must also be able to prove that the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable by the property owner. What this means is that if a shooting takes places at a location previously riddled with violent attacks and no efforts were made to combat crime, then the property owner could potentially be held liable. Every case is different, but generally if a property fails to meet the legal requirement of adequate security and a violent crime is deemed reasonably foreseeable, the victim can file a suit against the owner,” Kent suggests.
If you or someone close to you has fallen victim to a parking lot shooting, you can familiarize yourself with the relevant legal options by discussing your case with a crime victim attorney.
