Legal Recourse For Victims of Apartment Building Shootings

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville at Banville Law represents victims of apartment building shootings in civil lawsuits. Mr. Banville shares his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families left wondering, “can I sue for being shot?“.

“It is the legal duty of all commercial property owners to keep all of their employees and patrons safe from preventable dangers. Maintaining a safe property includes providing adequate security. When a property has strong security it helps to prevent future violet crime from injuring or killing those who visit the property. If a property owner fails to fulfill this duty and a violent crime occurs due to their negligence, then they may be held responsible for the crime”, stated Mr. Banville.

“Generally speaking, the owner of an apartment building may be held partially liable for a shooting if it was considered reasonably foreseeable. For instance, a shooting may be deemed reasonably foreseeable if the property had a history of violent crime or was located in an area with high violent crime and no security improvements were made. Overall, if a shooting occurs due to negligent security and is deemed reasonably foreseeable, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit”, concluded Mr. Banville.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of an apartment building shooting, you can learn more about your legal options by reviewing your case with a crime victim attorney.
