Can Shooting Victims and Their Families File Lawsuits?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is an experienced violent crime attorney who represents victims and their families in workplace shooting lawsuits. Bobby recently discussed situations where a workplace can be sued for a shooting. 

"Workplace security is one of the key responsibilities for business owners. Employees should come to work in an environment that is reasonably safe from preventable dangers, such as foreseeable violent crimes like shootings. Unfortunately, some shootings occur due to the business owner's failure to address the facility's security adequately. Safety precautions can include security cameras, well-lit parking lots, and patrolling security personnel."

"If a shooting occurs in the business or its parking lot, the circumstances of the crime will be investigated. This should include whether the shooting was preventable and if it happened due to safety negligence. For example, if an employee had reports of prior misconduct or violence yet was still allowed to work, the owner could be considered negligent for failing to prevent additional violence. Workplace shooting victims and their families should explore their legal options with an experienced violent crime attorney to determine if they have grounds to pursue a civil lawsuit. In some cases of negligence, they could be entitled to compensation."
