Financial Compensation For Victims of Parking Lot Shootings

Brian Kent, an experienced violent crime lawyer, has represented numerous victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. We asked Brian to provide insight on the rights of victims wounded during a shooting.

“Legally, all commercial property owners must maintain the safety of their patrons and employees while on the premises. In order to do this, property owners must provide adequate security measures. For example, establishing well-lit parking lots and hiring security guards. If a property owner fails to provide inadequate security and someone is injured on their premises, then he or she may be held responsible for the victim’s injuries”, explained Mr. Kent.

He continued: “A property owner may be considered liable if the crime is considered reasonably foreseeable. For instance, if a previous crime happened in or around the premises and the owner did not improve security measures, then the bar owner would be considered negligent. In negligence cases, victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner.”
