Financial Compensation For Mall Shooting Victims  

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is an experienced gunshot victim attorney who helps shooting victims and their families receive the financial compensation they deserve. We sat down with Bobby, and he discussed filing a lawsuit for financial compensation for mall shooting victims

"Commercial property owners, including shopping centers and malls, have a duty by law to provide adequate security on their premises. This often includes patrolling security guards, well-lit parking lots, and video cameras throughout the property. Unfortunately, when a mall owner fails to maintain their security, violent crimes like shootings can occur, causing injures or even death. Mall shooting victims may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the mall owner if they can prove negligent security was a factor."

"In addition to inadequate security, the victim's attorney will need to prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable. This could involve a crime in an area with a prior history of crime, where the owner did not improve security measures. Failing to improve security when the risk is high can lead to the mall owner being held liable for the crime." 

"Mall shooting victims and their families can learn more about their available legal options for compensation from an experienced gunshot victim attorney. Victims are often entitled to a settlement to cover medical expenses and other related damages."
