Legal Rights of Stabbing Victims

Our attorney contributor Dan Lipman is an experienced violent crimes lawyer that has worked with many victims in civil lawsuits. Dan has shared his thoughts on the legal rights of victims stabbed at a flea market:

"Flea market owners, just like other commercial property owners, are legally responsible for ensuring the safety of the patrons on their property. These property owners should do everything possible in their ability to maintain adequate safety measures. Examples of these could include surveillance cameras and good lighting in the parking lot, but there are plenty of others. When a crime, like a stabbing, occurs at a flea market, the victim's family should inquire if the property owner provided adequate security during the time of the crime. If a lawyer is able to prove that the property owner failed to provide a sufficient level of safety measures at the time of the incident, the victim's family could have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the flea market owner."

"In cases of violent crime, a flea market owner might even be held liable if the crime is found to be reasonably foreseeable. One example of a foreseeable crime could include if the property owner was aware of the area's increasing crime rates but neglected to increase security measures on their property. In cases of foreseeable crimes and the property owner is deemed negligent, the victim's family may have reason to pursue a civil lawsuit and should secure the services of an experienced violent crimes lawyer."
