Legal Options for Victims of Stabbings and Their Families

Attorney Bobby Thompson represents victims of violent crimes in civil lawsuits. He has shared his knowledge regarding the broad duty of property owners to protect their guests and patrons.

“Businesses have a responsibility to provide security features for their patrons and visitors. Under premises liability law, each property and business owner should ensure safety in the event a violent crime occurs. If criminal activity is rampant in the area surrounding their property, owners should implement security measures such as cameras, on-site officers, or even lighting in adjacent parking lots to avoid the crime from affecting their guests or clients.

Bobby elaborated, “If a property or business owner fails to provide adequate security for their clients, they may be found negligent. For negligence to be proven in a violent crime lawsuit, the crime that caused the injuries (or other types of damage) has to be proven as having be reasonably foreseeable. If an attorney is able to prove this in court, and it is found that the proprietor was cognizant and chose not to act to prevent it, then they may be found guilty of negligence and forced to pay compensation to any victims affected.”
