Legal Options of Victims Shot on Commercial Property

Attorney contributor Dan Lipman has represented numerous victims of shootings along with their families in civil lawsuits. In an interview, we asked Dan to provide insight into the rights of victims shot on commercial property.

“Property owners are legally responsible for the safety of their patrons, both on and around their property. Property owners are responsible for providing adequate security that ensures this safety while helping to prevent violent crimes from occurring. Examples of adequate security include a well-lit parking lot and the inclusion of security cameras. If someone on the property is injured due to a violent crime, such as a shooting, and there was no proper security provided, the victim and their family may have grounds for a civil lawsuit.”

“If a victim was injured due to a crime that is considered foreseeable or the property owner is found to be negligent, the property owner may be considered liable for the damages. An example would include if previous crimes had recently occurred on or around the property, yet the owner did not improve its security measures. If a victim’s violent crime attorney can prove that the crime occurred as a result of inadequate security, the victim may be eligible for compensation.”
