Legal Options of Victims Shot in a Restaurant
Attorney contributor Aaron Blank represents victims of violent crimes and their families in civil suits. Below Aaron provides insight into the rights of victims shot at a restaurant.
Aaron highlighted restaurant owners have a legal obligation to uphold the safety of their customers. “To ensure the safety of patrons on and around a restaurant, they must provide security measures. An example of ample security would include surveillance cameras. If there are not adequate security measures, the property owner may be considered negligent in a court of law.”
He furthered, “victims of violent crimes and their families should acquire the services of an experienced violent crime attorney. If a victim’s lawyer can prove the crime was foreseeable, then there may be a case of negligence on behalf of the restaurant owner. An example of a foreseeable crime is if a property owner was aware of previous criminal activity in the area but did not increase security. In these cases, a victim may receive compensation for damages.”
