Legal Options of Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents victims of shootings on private property and their families in civil lawsuits. Laurence provided insight about the rights of victims wounded during a shooting in the below commentary.

“Bar and club owners have a legal obligation to uphold the safety of those on or around their property. Property owners must provide security measures to ensure the safety of their customers. Examples of preventative security measures include security cameras and guards. If proper security is not provided by a property owner and someone is injured on the bar or club’s property, the owner may be held liable.”

“In the case that a crime is considered foreseeable, a property owner may be considered liable. A crime could be deemed foreseeable if there were previous violent crimes on or around the club’s property, but there were no security improvements. Victims and their families should know they may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner. If a victim’s lawyer can prove the injury occurred because of inadequate protection, the victim and their family may qualify for monetary compensation.”
