Attorney contributor Dan Lipman, an experienced violent crimes attorney, has represented victims of violent crimes and their families in civil suits. Below Dan has provided insight into the rights of victims shot on commercial property.
Dan explained how commercial property owners have a legal obligation to uphold the safety of their customers. “To ensure the safety of customers on and around the commercial property, they should provide proper security measures. Examples of these security measures could include surveillance cameras and proper lighting inside and outside. If adequate security measures were not in place, the property owner could be found negligent in a court of law.”
"Violent crime victims and their families have a right to seek the services of an experienced violent crimes attorney. If their attorney can provide evidence that the crime was foreseeable, the property owner could be deemed negligent. A foreseeable crime could be one that happened on property that failed to increase its security measures following an uptick in crime in the area. In this case, the victim could be entitled to compensation for damages."
