Legal Recourse For Victims Shot at a Restaurant

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents victims of criminal violence and their families in civil lawsuits. We recently asked Laurence to explain the legal recourse available for shooting victims and their families.

"Restaurants owners, similar to commercial property owners, have a legal obligation to keep their patrons and staff safe while on their property. Property owners should provide adequate security measures, including video surveillance and proper lighting throughout the premises. If property owners fail to offer sufficient security within their restaurant and a crime, such as a shooting, occurs, then they could be held responsible for the crime."

"Many may wonder if they can sue for being shot at a restaurant. If a crime is deemed reasonably foreseeable in addition to negligent security, victims may have reason to pursue a lawsuit. A foreseeable crime would include one that could have been predicted and possibly prevented. If the crime in the area was on the rise, but the property owner failed to enhance their security, then crimes committed on the property could be deemed foreseeable. However, victims and their families are advised to seek the counsel of an experienced violent crime lawyer to determine the best legal recourse to a shooting at a restaurant."
