Legal Options For Victims of Parking Lot Shootings

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents violent crime victims in civil cases. Mr. Lenahan has shared with us his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families.

“If you own a commercial property, you have a legal duty to keep your patrons and employees safe from any reasonably foreseeable dangers. In order to fulfill this duty, property owners must provide adequate security on site. This may include, but is not limited to installing video cameras, hiring security personnel, and providing well-lit parking lots. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security, and a shooting occurs due to their negligence, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit”, said Mr. Lenahan.

“In addition, the crime must be proven reasonably foreseeable for the property owner to be considered liable. A reasonable foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property that had a prior history of criminal violence, yet no security improvements were put in place. Essentially, if a victim's lawyer can prove that the crime which injured their client was reasonable foreseeable and only occurred due to inadequate security, then the property owner may be deemed responsible", explained Mr. Lenahan.

If you or someone you loved has fallen victim to a parking lot shooting, then you are encourage to contact a professional crime victim attorney to discuss the legal options available to you and your family.
