Legal Options of Victims Shot in a Night Club

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. In an interview with Brian, he provided his insight about the rights of victims shot on commercial property.

When asked about property owners’ responsibility to uphold safety, Kent said the following: Property owners are obligated to uphold the safety of those on their property. Property owners must provide adequate security to ensure violent crime is prevented. Examples of preventative security measures are security cameras or security guards. If ample protection is not provided by a property owner and someone is injured, the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner.

Kent later stated a property owner could be seen as liable if the crime is considered foreseeable. For example, a crime is foreseeable if previous violent crimes occurred on their property, and there were no improvements to security. If the victim’s lawyer can prove the crime in which the victim was injured as occurring solely because of inadequate protection, the property owner may be found liable. In such cases, the offense could be deemed reasonably foreseeable.
