Legal Recourse For Victims Injured in Shopping Mall Stabbings

Attorney contributor Aaron Blank works closely with victims in civil lawsuits for stabbings. Mr. Blank has offered to share his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families.

“Commercial property owners are legally required to maintain the safety of their patrons and employees on their premises. Providing adequate security is apart of this legal duty because it helps deter preventable crime from happening. Adequate security may include hiring security personnel or establishing well-lit parking lots. If a property owner fails to provide adequate protection, and a stabbing occurs due to their negligence, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the owner”, stated Mr. Blank.

“Inadequate security is not the only factor necessary for a security negligence case. The victim’s attorney must also prove that violent crime was reasonably foreseeable. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property that has a past of criminal violence, yet no security improvements were established. Essentially, a violent crime victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner if the crime occurred because of inadequate security, and if the crime was considered reasonably foreseeable”, explained Mr. Blank.

If you or someone you loved has been a victim of a shopping mall stabbing, you can review your legal options with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
