Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is an experienced violent crimes lawyer. Marc represents victims harmed in restaurant stabbings and helps them determine their legal options. Below, Marc provides some of his insight.
“Restaurants have a legal obligation to provide a safe environment, including their property and the surrounding area. Unfortunately, there are often crimes committed on the commercial property resulting in the harming of patrons. Property owners must implement safeguards, such as cameras and strong lighting to prevent crime from occurring. If restaurant owners fail to provide adequate safeguards, they may be deemed negligent and liable in violent crimes occurring on their property.”
“A property owner may be deemed negligent in a civil lawsuit about a violent crime if the crime was reasonably foreseeable. An example of a reasonably foreseeable crime is if crime rates increased recently in the area, but the property owner did not increase security. Victims’ families should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation for damages if the property owner is deemed liable and negligent.”
