Legal Options Available to Victims Injured in Parking Lot Stabbings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent works closely with parking lot stabbing victims in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent has offered to share his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families.

“Essentially, what parking lot stabbing victims and their families should know is that property owners are legally obligated to ensure the safety of all customers and employees on-site. To successfully protect their patrons from preventable crime, property owners must provide adequate security on the premises. Therefore, when adequate security is not offered and someone falls victim to a stabbing, then he or she may be able to bring forward a valid lawsuit against the owner”, explains Mr. Kent.

“With that being said, a violent crime victim attorney must also prove that the stabbing was reasonably foreseeable in addition to a showing of inadequate security. Essentially, if a stabbing occurs in a parking lot with a previous history of violent crime, yet the owner did not enhance security measures,  then the crime may be considered reasonably foreseeable. In total, a crime victim attorney must prove that the security was inadequate and that the crime was reasonably foreseeable for there to be a valid lawsuit against a property owner”, concludes Mr. Kent.

If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a parking lot stabbing, please contact an experienced crime victim attorney to discuss the legal options available to you.
