Legal Options of Victims of Stabbing

Reed Martens, our attorney contributor, has represented numerous victims of violent crimes in civil lawsuits. During an interview, Reed shared his insight on the legal options of victims stabbed on commercial property.

“Commercial property owners, like nursing homes, are required by law to maintain a level of safety for their customers and staff. Property owners are responsible for providing a level of protection for those on and around their property through adequate security. These security measures could include video surveillance and enhanced lighting throughout the property. If a crime, such as a stabbing, occurs on commercial property, victims and their families should inquire if there was adequate security at the time. If a victim’s attorney can prove that adequate security was not provided at the time of the incident, the victim may have sufficient grounds to pursue a civil lawsuit against the owner.”

“A property owner could even be held liable for a stabbing that occurred on their property if the crime was considered foreseeable. A foreseeable crime could include if the owner knew there were increasing crime rates in the area but failed to increase security measures. In these cases, the property owner could be found negligent and held liable. Victims and their families should secure the services of a violent crime attorney to determine whether the crime involved property owner negligence.”
