Legal Options Available to Victims of Shootings

Attorney Marc Lenahan often represents victims of violent crimes in civil court. Below, he has shared his knowledge of the legal routes that families and victims can take if they choose to pursue a lawsuit.

"Property owners are legally obligated to provide adequate security for their customers and visitors. Premises liability law urges property owners to ensure the safety of their customers by installing surveillance, flood lighting in parking areas, and similar security measures for protection of persons on their property. If an owner fails to place safety features, they can be found negligent if a violent crime takes place on their property.

More specifically, if the owner of a building is aware of previous crimes in the area and chooses to ignore improving security, they are putting the health and safety of their visitors at risk. If a violent crime then takes place on the property and a guest becomes a victim, then the proprietor may be sued on the basis of negligence for not safeguarding against reasonably foreseeable crimes.

It is the violent crime attorney's task to argue and prove that the property owner made no significant changes in hopes of improving security. If the argument is strong and the case is won, victims and their families may then receive a financial compensation based on all of the damages that they suffered." Lenahan explained.
