Legal Options of Victims Shot Outside of a Grocery Store

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has represented victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits for years. During a recent interview, we asked Brian to share his insight on victims' rights outside of a grocery store.

"Grocery store owners, like other commercial property owners, have a legal obligation to provide a level of protection for the customers and staff on and around the grocery store property. Property owners should provide adequate security to ensure safety and prevent violent crimes from occurring on the premises. Some examples of these security measures could include sufficient lighting and security cameras throughout the property. If someone on the property is injured from a violent crime and sufficient security was not provided, the victim and their family could have grounds to pursue a civil lawsuit."

"If the crime that led to the victim's injury was reasonably foreseeable or if the property owner is considered negligent, the property owner could be responsible for the damages. A foreseeable crime includes if crimes had recently occurred on or around the property, but the owner failed to improve security, and another one took place. If a victim's attorney can prove that the crime occurred as a result of inadequate security, the victim and their family could be eligible for monetary compensation."
