What Legal Recourse is Available For Victims Shot at Gas Stations?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is a gun injury attorney in the state of Pennsylvania. Brian represents victims in civil lawsuits for shootings caused by negligence. Recently he shared some information on the victim's legal options following being shot at a gas station.

"Proper security is a key responsibility for all business owners, including gas stations. Many of these businesses can be at a higher risk for violence as they stay open all hours of the night. It's essential to provide security precautions to reduce the risk of violence as much as possible. Maintaining a well-lit environment, installing security cameras and panic buttons are just a few steps owners can take to secure their property. Gas station owners should make sure the safety of their customers and staff is a top priority. Sadly, shootings and stabbings happen at gas stations as a result of inadequate security or other forms of negligence."

"When people are hurt, or worse, killed in a gas station shooting, a complete investigation must take place. Law enforcement will investigate the circumstances surrounding the shooting for criminal charges. However, this should also consider the property's security and whether additional protection could have prevented the shooting. In cases involving negligence, the victims may have reason to pursue a civil lawsuit against the gas station. Always seek the counsel of an experienced gun injury attorney to determine the best legal recourse following a violent crime injury."
