Legal Rights of Victims Stabbed at Strip Mall

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau has represented victims of violent crimes, such as stabbings along with their families, for years. During a recent interview, Bobby shared his knowledge on the legal rights of victims stabbed at a strip mall.

“Strip mall owners, just like other commercial property owners, have a legal duty to care for the safety of their customers and employees on their property. Strip mall owners can take several steps to minimize the risks for those on and around their property by implementing adequate security. Some of these security measures might include security cameras and enhanced lighting throughout the property. If a crime, such as a stabbing, takes place on the property, victims and their families have a legal right to question if adequate security was in place at the time of the crime. The victim could have reasonable grounds for a civil lawsuit against the strip mall owner if their lawyer can prove security negligence.”

“The strip mall owner could even be held liable for a stabbing that takes place on their property if the crime is found to be reasonably foreseeable. This could be as simple as knowing of increasing crime rates in the area but failing to add security precautions to the property. If the owner is careless, they could be deemed negligent and held liable in a lawsuit. Victims along with their families are highly encouraged to speak with a violent crimes lawyer to see if they are able to file a lawsuit and possibly recover compensation.”
