Witnesses stated that an employee became enraged after receiving a write up from the supervisor and allegedly shot the supervisor 3 times- once in the leg, once in the chest, and once in the lower abdomen.

Legal Recourse for Shooting Victims and Families of Victims

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville specializes in civil cases dealing with victims of violent crimes. Mr. Banville agreed to share his insight on the legal routes that victims and their families may choose to follow.

“Shootings change the lives of victims and their families on a dime. If the victim survives a shooting, they could face a lifetime of pain from injuries, emotional state of mind, and could traumatize their families forever. Unfortunately, this means medical bills could pile up and could send the victim into debt and will likely need long-term counseling,” says Banville.

“While we encourage every crime victim to participate fully with the police and criminal prosecutors, the criminal justice system isn’t designed to help survivors recover from their injuries and trauma. That’s especially true where financial compensation is concerned. Within the criminal justice system, victims and their families have two options to secure compensation,” Banville states.

“After a conviction of the perpetrator, families have a right to ask a Court for restitution for damages (perpetrator pays victim). Against a Court Order, the perpetrator will pay in addition to their sentence. This is only one form of monetary damages that may be awarded to the victim or the family of the victim. Many survivors of crime, however, have another option: pursuing financial damages through the civil justice system,” defines Banville.
