Seeking Compensation For Gas Station Stabbings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents victims of violent crime in civil lawsuits in the state of Pennsylvania. In an interview, we asked Brian, an experienced violent crimes attorney, to share insight on the legal options of victims stabbed at a gas station and when they might be entitled to compensation.

"Gas station owners, like other commercial property owners, have a legal obligation to provide reasonable safety for their customers and clerks. Video surveillance inside and outside the property, as well as ample lighting, are just a couple of examples of security measures that can help reduce preventable dangers like stabbings. Victims have the right to question if adequate security was in place when the stabbing occurred on the business' property."

"A gas station owner may be held accountable for a foreseeable crime committed on their property. If the owner was aware of the rising crime rates in the area but did not strengthen security measures on the property, this would be an example of a foreseeable crime. Victims and their families should consult with an experienced violent crime attorney to help prove the crime was committed due to property owner negligence. Compensation can be used for medical expenses and lost income."
