On Sunday, just before 2 a.m. on August 8, 2021, police responded to a call of gunfire inside the Royal Farms gas station in Dover. When they arrived on the scene, they learned that one man had been transported to the hospital with a gunshot wound in a private vehicle.

Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Gas Station

Attorney contributor Phil Edwards, a violent crime lawyer, has represented numerous victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. During an interview, we asked Phil to provide insight into the rights of victims shot on commercial property.

“Property owners are legally obligated to provide a level of security and protection to their customers and employees on their property. Property owners can be held responsible for providing adequate security to ensure the safety and prevention of violent crimes on their property. Examples of adequate security can include a properly lit perimeter, surveillance cameras, and even security guards. If someone gets injured due to a crime and the proper security measured were deemed lacking, the victim and their family could have reasonable grounds for a civil lawsuit.”

“If a victim was injured due to a crime that was considered reasonably foreseeable and the owner is found negligent, they may be held liable for the damages. An example of a foreseeable crime could include if recent crimes had occurred on or around the property, yet the owner did not improve existing security measures. If a victim’s lawyer can prove that the crime occurred due to incompetent security, they may be entitled to monetary compensation. The victim and their family are urged to seek the counsel of an experienced violent crimes attorney.”
