Legal Options Available to Parking Lot Shooting Victims
Brian Kent is an attorney contributor at CrimeVictim.Attorney who helps parking lot shooting victims seek justice through civil lawsuits. Below Mr. Kent has generously shared his knowledge on the legal options available to these victims and their families.
“A crucial responsibility for parking lot owners is ensuring that their patrons and employees are kept as safe as possible while on their property. To the best of their abilities, parking lot owners must take necessary precautions and provide adequate security to their customers. Adequate security may include hiring security personnel or installing video surveillance. If a parking lot owner fails to provide adequate security and a shooting occurs due to their negligence, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the owner”, Mr. Kent stated.
“However, parking lot shooting cases are complex and the shooting must also be deemed reasonably foreseeable for the owner to be held liable. A reasonable foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a previous history of criminal violence. Essentially, a parking lot owner must take into account any prior criminal violence that has occurred in their area and adjust their security measures in order to prevent any future hazards from occurring. If a reasonably foreseeable shooting occurs due to negligent security, then the property owner may be deemed responsible for the crime”, explained Mr. Kent.
