Legal Options of Victims Shot Inside a Restaurant

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan is a violent crimes lawyer with years of experience representing victims of violent crimes, such as shootings, in civil lawsuits. Kevin has kindly provided his insight regarding the rights of a victim shot at a restaurant.

"Restaurant owners have a legal duty to uphold the safety of their customers and staff. In order to ensure the safety of their customers, restaurant owners should provide a sufficient level of security measures as a preventative. Examples of ample protection could include security cameras and extensive lighting throughout the property. However, if the owner does not implement adequate security measures, they can be deemed negligent in a civil lawsuit."

"Victims and their families are advised to acquire the services of a violent crimes attorney. A victim could have a solid case if their attorney can prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable. A crime is considered reasonably foreseeable if the property owner did not implement adequate security following an uptick in crime rates in the area. In cases of neglect, the victim and their family may have reason to pursue a civil lawsuit which could result in recovering financial compensation."
