Are Parking Lot Owners Liable for Shootings on Their Properties?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of https://crimevictim.Attorney represents crime victims in civil lawsuits.
“All commercial property owners of places like bars, restaurants, and parking lots have a legal duty to keep their patrons and employees safe from any preventable dangers. In order to do so, the owners must provide an adequate standard of security based off of prior violent crime that occurred in their area. This helps reduce the risk of incidents like shootings and stabbings“, stated Mr. Kent.
“If a commercial property owner fails to provide adequate security, and a shooting or stabbing occurs on their property due to the negligent security, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit. However, a commercial property owner may only be considered liable if the victims’ legal counsel proves that the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable and only occurred because of inadequate security”, Mr. Kent explained.
