Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Deli

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville has represented numerous victims of shootings along with their families in civil lawsuits. In a recent interview, we asked Laurence to share his insight regarding the rights of victims shot at a deli.

"Deli owners, like other commercial property owners, are legally obligated to protect the customers on their property. Deli owners are responsible for providing an adequate level of security in order to prevent violent crimes from occurring on the property. Some examples of adequate security may include a well-lit environment and surveillance cameras. In the event that an injury takes place on the property while it lacked proper security, the victim and their family could have reason to pursue a lawsuit."

"If the crime is considered reasonably foreseeable or the property owner is deemed negligent, the property owner could even be considered liable for the damages. A foreseeable crime could include if previous crimes occurred on or around the property and the owner did not improve the property's security. If a violent crimes attorney can prove that the crime occurred due to lack of security, the victim may even be eligible for monetary compensation."
