Legal Rights for Victims Shot on Public Transit

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson has represented numerous victims of shootings along with their families in civil lawsuits in California. Bobby recently provided his insight regarding the rights of victims shot on public transit.

"Trains, like all forms of public transit, have a legal responsibility to keep their passengers and employees safe while on their property. Transit owners should maintain adequate security measures on the trains, including security guards, metal detectors, bag searches, and security cameras. If a violent crime, such as a shooting, occurs on their property and they failed to provide proper security measures, the victims and their families may have grounds to pursue a lawsuit based on their negligence."

"The victim's attorney should be able to prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable in addition to the negligent security. A crime could be deemed foreseeable if previous incidents had taken place on or around the train's property. Victims are highly encouraged to explore their legal options fully under the advice of an experienced violent crimes attorney."
