Legal Options Available to Victims of Store Shootings
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of www.crimevictim.Attorney represents victims of store shootings and their families in civil lawsuits.
First Mr. Kent explained how every store owner must provide adequate security, “All commercial property owners have a legal requirement of keeping their patrons and employees safe from the threat of preventable crime. In order to do so, owners of places like restaurants must provide adequate security on their properties. Examples of adequate security include hiring security guards, installing metal detectors, establishing well-lit parking lots, and much more.”
He continued: “If a store owner does fail to provide adequate security and an incident such as a shooting occurs due to their negligence, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit. Additionally, a victim’s lawyer must prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. For example, if that store had a prior history of violent crime and no security improvements were made, then the shooting may be considered reasonably foreseeable. Each case is unique, but in general if a reasonably foreseeable shooting occurs at a store due to negligent security, then the victims may have a lawsuit against the property owner.”
