Legal Rights for Shooting Victims and Their Families

Attorney Commentator Laurence Banville has experience helping victims of violent crimes along with their families find justice through civil lawsuits. Laurence has provided the following comments on the rights of victims of shootings at parks.

Commercial property owners are obligated by law to ensure the premises stay reasonably safe. A reasonable amount of security may include things like security cameras and proper lighting throughout the grounds. Failure to uphold its responsibility to keep parkgoers safe could be grounds for a civil lawsuit.

However, for a victim to have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner, the crime must have been reasonably foreseeable and if reasonable precautions were not made. A foreseeable crime could include one that occurs on a property with a previous history of crimes, yet the owner did nothing to improve security. Victims and their families are encouraged to contact an experienced violent crimes attorney to walk you through your options.
