Legal Options Open To Victims of Parking Lot Shootings and Their Families

Marc Lenahan is an attorney contributor who represents victims of parking lot shootings. Mr. Lenahan shares his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families.

“Under certain circumstances, victims injured or killed in shootings on commercial properties may have the option to file a lawsuit against the property owner. The first component to be met is that the shooting must have only occurred due to inadequate security. All commercial property owners must provide adequate security on their premises in order to protect their patrons and employees from preventable dangers. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security and a violent crime injures someone on the property due to their negligence, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner”, explains Mr, Lenahan.

“The second component that must be met in order for a property owner to be held liable for a shooting on their property is that the crime must be considered reasonably foreseeable. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs at a place with a history of violent crime, but with no security improvements established. For example, if a reasonably foreseeable shooting occurs at a parking lot due to inadequate security, then the property owner may be considered responsible for the crime”, concludes Mr. Lenahan.

If you or a loved one has experienced a similar incident as the one above, you can learn about your legal options by discussing your case with a crime victim attorney.
