Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Flea Market? 

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard has fought for justice for victims of gunshot injuries in the state of Florida. He often provides legal aid to both the victims and their families, including filing civil lawsuits for financial compensation. During a recent interview, Michael shared his insight regarding when victims can sue for being shot at a flea market.

"Flea market owners, like other commercial property owners, have a legal responsibility to ensure their guests and vendors are reasonably safe on their property. These owners should implement basic security measures according to premises liability laws in order to reduce the risk of dangers, such as shootings. This could involve maintaining well-lit parking lots, security cameras, and even on-site security personnel."

"If the owner of a flea market neglects its security, they could be held liable for damages. If the criminal activity had increased in the area, but the owner failed to make improvements to the security, and a crime took place, it may be considered foreseeable. Victims should employ the aid of an experienced violent crime attorney to guide them through the legal process."
