Legal Rights of Victims Stabbed at Shopping Plaza

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan has represented numerous victims of violent crime in civil lawsuits. During a recent interview, Mark shared his insight on the legal rights of victims stabbed at a shopping plaza.

“Commercial property owners, including shopping plazas and their tenants, have a legal obligation to ensure the safety of customers and employees on their property. Shopping plaza owners should protect those on and around their property by offering adequate security. Some prime examples of security measures could include camera surveillance, security guards, and enhanced lighting. If a violent crime, such as a stabbing, occurs on the property, victims have the right to inquire whether there was adequate security during the time of the crime. If the victim’s attorney is able to prove that sufficient security was lacking at the time of the incident, the victim could have grounds to pursue a civil lawsuit against the shopping plaza or tenant owner.”

“The shopping plaza owner may even be considered liable for a stabbing on their property if the stabbing is considered foreseeable. A foreseeable crime might include if the owner was aware of increasing crime rates in the area and neglected to increase security measures on the property. In such cases, the shopping plaza owner could be deemed negligent and held liable. Victims along with their families should employ the services of a violent crimes attorney in order to determine if the crime involved property owner negligence.”
