Legal Recourse For Victims of Market Stabbings

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents victims of criminal violence in civil lawsuits.

“Commercial property owners have a great responsibility to protect their patrons and employees from preventable harm on the premises. A market owner, for instance, must provide adequate security on-site to help shield its customers from violent crime. Things like improved lighting in the parking lot at night and video surveillance qualify as adequate security. However, when a market or parking lot owner fails to offer adequate security to its patrons and then from this negligence a person falls victim to a stabbing on the property, the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit”, stated Mr. Banville.

He continued: “In addition to a showing of inadequate security, the victim’s lawyer must also prove that the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable. If a market or its surrounding area has a history of violent crime then the stabbing may be considered reasonably foreseeable and the owner could potentially be held liable. Overall, a showing of inadequate security and a reasonably foreseeable violent crime is required before a victim can bring a valid lawsuit against a property owner.”

If you or someone you know has been affected by a market or parking lot stabbing, please do not hesitate to contact an experienced violent crime victim attorney to discuss your legal options. We encourage you to reach out to Mr. Banville who offered his legal analysis for this story.
