Legal Options of Victims Shot in a Restaurant

Attorney contributor Dan Lipman represents victims of violent crimes and their families in civil suits. Below Dan provides insight into the rights of victims shot at a restaurant.

"Restaurant owners have a legal obligation to provide a level of safety to their customers. In order to ensure this safety, they could have security cameras on the property along with adequate lighting in the parking lot. Without having safety measures in place, the property owner may be found negligent in a court of law."

"Victims of violent crime, along with their families, should inquire about the safety measures in place following a crime. If a crime is foreseeable, then there would be grounds for a civil lawsuit. An example of a foreseeable crime would be if the crime rate in the area increased, but the property owner failed to increase the security measures at the restaurant. An experienced violent crime attorney can help to prove that the crime was foreseeable, in this case. This could lead to the property owner being found negligent in a civil lawsuit which could include compensation for the victims and their families."
