Legal Options of Victims Shot Outside of a Stadium

Attorney contributor Dan Lipman has a wide variety of experience working with victims and their families in civil lawsuits involving violent crimes. In an interview, Dan has shared essential concepts regarding the legal rights of victims shot outside of a stadium:

"Owners of commercial property, such as a stadium, must put the protection of their patrons first and the product of their entertainment second. Security measures should be used to ensure the well-being of their customers, and these can include guards and security cameras. If the security measures are lacking, the property is at risk for criminal activity, and anyone visiting the business can hold those in charge as liable in a civil lawsuit if, in fact, one takes place."

"The liability of a commercial property owner depends on whether a lawyer can prove negligence. If crime rates increase in a particular area, owners should increase their ways to protect their guests, and if they do not and a crime occurs, it is considered foreseeable. Victims, at this point, may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against an owner due to negligence. It is advisable to seek out a reputable violent crimes attorney when exploring legal options. Victims can potentially receive compensation for damages if the property owner is seen at fault."
