Legal Options of Victims Shot Outside of School

Attorney contributor Dan Lipman has years of experience representing victims of shootings along with their families in civil lawsuits. During an interview with Dan, we asked for some of his insight regarding the rights of victims shot outside of school.

When we asked Dan about property owners’ responsibility to uphold safety, he replied, "property owners, including school officials, are legally responsible for upholding a level of safety for those on their property. The property owners should provide ample security measures to ensure that violent crimes are prevented. Some examples of good preventative security measures include installing security cameras inside and around the property grounds in addition to proper lighting. If adequate protective measures have not been put into place by a property owner and someone is injured on the property, the victim may have substantial reasons to pursue a lawsuit against that property owner."

Dan continued to state that "a property owner could be determined liable if the crime is considered foreseeable. One example of a crime that is foreseeable could include if previous violent crimes occurred on their property or in the area, and yet the owner failed to improve the security measures on the property. If the victim’s attorney can prove the victim was injured during a crime that took place solely due to lack of protection, the property owner could be deemed liable as the offense could be deemed reasonably foreseeable. We would suggest to the victim and their family seek out an experienced violent crimes attorney."
