Are Business Owners Liable For Violent Crime Injuries?

Michael Haggard is an attorney contributor, here are some of his thoughts on the rights of violent crime victims:

When a customer gets injured as the victim of a violent crime, we should ask if the business owner bears any responsibility for the incident. Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises free of dangers that could cause an injury. In a restaurant, this means making sure that the property is free of common dangers like slip and fall hazards. However, these business owners also have an obligation to prevent reasonably foreseeable violent crime.

In some cases, violent incidents like shootings and stabbings may have been prevented if the property owner had taken preventative measures. For example, security cameras, guards, and well-lit parking lots can all help reduce the risk of crime. In order for a business owner to be held liable in a lawsuit filed by a crime victim, that victim and their lawyer will need to establish that the risk of violence was foreseeable and that the business owner was negligent by failing to take measures to prevent violence.

Premises liability is a complicated legal concept, so violent crime victims who are curious about their legal options should speak to an experienced crime victim lawyer to understand their rights.
