Filing Lawsuits For Victims Shot At Work

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced violent crime attorney who helps victims and their families get workplace shooting compensation. Brian recently discussed when victims can file a lawsuit if shot at their work.  

"One of the most important obligations for business owners is property security. Employees should be able to come to work in an environment that is sufficiently safe from preventable threats such as shootings. Too often, shootings occur as a result of the business owner's failure to provide reasonable security to the property. Security cameras, well-lit parking lots, and patrolling security personnel are all examples of safety procedures that can help reduce the risk of dangers at the workplace."

"Victims and the family members of workplace shooting victims should consult with an experienced violent crime attorney to see if they have grounds to file a civil action. If there were any known threats to the workplace or increased crime in the area, the business owner could be held liable for increasing its security measures. If their legal representative can prove the crime was foreseeable and that the business owner neglected the security of the property, they may be eligible for compensation."
