Legal Options Available to Victims Injured in Parking Lot Stabbings

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan works closely with violent crime victims and their families in civil cases. Below Mr. Lenahan has shared his knowledge about the legal options available to these victims.

Mr. Lenahan explains, “Every commercial property owners is legally obligated to protect their patrons and employees from any reasonably foreseeable dangers. In order to successfully fulfill this duty, property owners must provide adequate security on site. Say a parking lot owner fails to provide adequate security and a stabbing occurs due to their negligence, in this case he or she may be held partially liable for the crime.”

“In addition to inadequate security, a crime victims attorney must also prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable for there to be a valid lawsuit. If a violent crime occurs on a property with a large history of criminal violence, and no security improvements were established, then it may be considered reasonably foreseeable and the property owner may be held liable. Essentially, if a reasonably foreseeable crime occurs due to inadequate security, then the victim of that crime may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner”, concludes Mr. Lenahan.

If you or someone you loved has experienced something similar to the incident above, you can contact a crime victim attorney to discuss the legal options available to you.
