Legal Options of Victims Stabbed at a Gas Station

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville, an experienced violent crime attorney, has represented numerous victims of stabbings in civil lawsuits. Below, Laurence provides insight on the legal rights of victims stabbed at a gas station.

"Commercial property owners have a legal duty to provide a safe environment for those on and around their property. Property owners should do everything possible to ensure the safety of those in the area. Providing adequate safety measures is one step to help prevent crime. Examples of security measures include cameras and strong lighting, but there are more. When a victim is stabbed on commercial property, they should question if ample security measures were in place at the time of the incident."

"If adequate security measures were not implemented at the time of the crime, the commercial property owner could be deemed liable for the crime. For a property owner to be deemed liable, the crime would have to be deemed reasonably foreseeable. An example of a foreseeable crime is if crime rates in the area increased, but security measures did not change. In cases of negligence and foreseeable crimes, victims should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the gas station and consult an experienced violent crime attorney.
