Legal Options For Victims of Parking Lot Shootings

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan has offered his insight on the legal options available to parking lot shooting victims and their families.

“There are numerous legal options open to victims and their families who were injured or killed due to negligent security on commercial properties such as restaurants, bars, and parking lots. These property owners have a legal duty of maintaining their patrons and employees safety and protecting them from preventable hazards. Every negligence case is different, generally speaking if a parking lot owner fails to provide adequate security and a shooting occurs because of their negligence, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit", stated Mr. Lenahan.

He continued, "In addition, it must be proven that the shooting was reasonably foreseeable. For example, if a parking lot or its surrounding area had a prior history of violent crime, then the shooting may be deemed reasonably foreseeable and the owner may be held liable."

If you or a loved one has been a victim to a parking lot shooting, you can learn more about your legal options by reviewing your case with a crime victim attorney. We encourage you to reach out to Mr. Lenahan who provided his legal analysis for this story.
