Exploring Legal Recourse for Victims Shot at a Restaurant

After learning about the shooting incident at the Waffle House in Hanover Township, Lehigh County, we reached out to Guy D'Andrea, a prominent Pennsylvania-based gun violence lawyer, to shed light on the legal options available to victims in cases involving negligent property owners, specifically within the context of restaurants. Here are some key insights from our conversation with Attorney Guy D'Andrea, who has extensive experience in handling civil cases related to gun violence.

Darla Medina (DM): Thank you, Attorney Kent, for joining us today. Given your expertise, what can victims of shootings at restaurants do in terms of pursuing a civil case against negligent property owners?

Guy D'Andrea (BK): Thank you for having me, Darla. In cases where individuals have suffered harm due to a shooting incident at a restaurant, there may be legal options available to them. One potential avenue is pursuing a civil case against the negligent property owner.

DM: Could you elaborate on what constitutes negligence in such cases?

BK: Certainly, Darla. Negligence on the part of a property owner may arise if they failed to provide adequate security measures to protect their patrons. This could include a lack of security personnel, inadequate surveillance systems, or insufficient protocols to address potential threats. It's important to establish that the property owner knew or should have known about the risk of violence and yet failed to take appropriate precautions to mitigate it.

DM: How can victims initiate a civil case and what type of compensation can they potentially seek?

BK: Victims can consult with an experienced attorney who specializes in premises liability and personal injury cases. The attorney will thoroughly evaluate the circumstances surrounding the shooting and assess the potential liability of the property owner. If negligence is established, victims may seek compensation for various damages, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other related costs.

DM: Are there any challenges victims might face when pursuing civil cases against negligent property owners?

BK: Absolutely, Darla. These cases can be complex and require a comprehensive investigation to establish liability. Additionally, the defense may argue that the incident was unforeseeable or that the property owner took reasonable measures to prevent harm. It is crucial for victims to have a skilled attorney who can gather evidence, navigate legal complexities, and build a strong case on their behalf.

DM: Thank you, Attorney Kent, for sharing your insights on this important matter. Is there anything else you would like to add?

BK: It's my pleasure, Darla. I would like to emphasize that each case is unique, and seeking legal counsel is vital for victims to understand their rights and pursue justice. If you or someone you know has been affected by a shooting incident at a restaurant, it is crucial to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
