Legal Recourse for Victims of Restaurant Shootings and Their Families
Attorney contributor and shooting victim lawyer Bobby Thompson represents victims of violent crimes in civil lawsuits:
When a violent crime takes place on a commercial property, in some cases the property owner may be liable. However, every case is unique and complex. A commercial property owner has a legal duty of keeping their patrons and employees safe from any reasonably foreseeable crime. In order to prevent reasonably foreseeable violent crime from occurring, property owners must provide adequate security.
If a property owner does not provide adequate security and a violent crime occurs on their property due to the negligence, then the owner may be liable. Additionally, if a crime is proven to be reasonably foreseeable, then the owner may be considered responsible. For example, if a shooting occurs at a restaurant that has a prior history of violent crime and no security improvements were made, this may be considered a reasonably foreseeable crime.
