Lawsuits for Restaurant Shootings

Attorney Ryan Frazier has numerous years of trial experience representing restaurant shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Ryan recently shared information for victims looking to receive a settlement for getting shot at a restaurant

"Business owners, such as restaurants, by law have an obligation to provide a safe environment for both patrons and staff. There are various measures a restaurant can implement to ensure a safe property, including security cameras and sufficient lighting in the parking lot. When a restaurant owner fails to implement sufficient safety measures, victims of violent crimes, such as shootings, may have grounds to file a civil lawsuit."

"All shooting victims have the legal right to seek out justice for damages. Sometimes the business owner is found to be a negligent third party if safety precautions were not in place to reduce the risk of preventable crimes. If the property owner has not met proper safety expectations, victims or their families should contact an experienced shooting victim lawyer to learn more about the options for filing a civil lawsuit. An experienced lawyer could be the key to receiving full compensation for damages."
