Can Parking Lot Owners Be Held Liable For Shootings?

Attorney contributor Dan Lipman represents victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Mr. Lipman has offered to share some of his knowledge on lawsuits for parking lot shootings:

It is necessary for parking lot owners to ensure that their parameters are secure and safe. A way to do this would be to provide adequate security. This may include hiring security personnel or installing video cameras. Failure to provide adequate security may allow victims of criminal violence to have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner.

Along with inadequate security, a victim's lawyer must prove that the crime which injured their client was reasonably foreseeable.  For instance, if a parking lot had a history of shootings and the owner did not improve the security and a violent crime occurred on-site, then the owner may be held liable for that crime. Both factors of inadequate security and a reasonably foreseeable crime must be proved for a property owner to be deemed responsible for a victim's injuries.

If you or someone you love has experienced anything similar to the story above, you are encouraged to reach out to a crime victim lawyer in order to review your legal options.
