Who Is Liable For a Grocery Store Shooting?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has helped many surviving family members of victims killed in shootings in Pennsylvania. As an experienced gun crime lawyer, he shared some of the legal rights with these victims, including when a grocery store can be held liable for a fatal shooting. 

"Grocery store owners, like any other commercial business owner, have a legal obligation to ensure the safety of their customers and employees while on their premises. Security cameras around and inside the property and ample lighting are just a few measures that can help reduce dangers, such as store shootings. A store owner's failure to provide adequate security may be considered negligent and cause them to be held liable."

"If the crime is determined to be reasonably foreseeable, victims injured or killed in a grocery shop shooting may have grounds to file a case against the negligent grocery store owner. A crime may be considered predictable if the grocery store owner failed to increase security even though they knew of a recent uptick in criminal activity in the area. An experienced gun crime lawyer can help victims or their surviving family members learn more about their legal options following a grocery store shooting."
