Legal Rights of Victims Shot Outside of a Gas Station

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is an experienced violent crime lawyer that represents shooting victims in civil lawsuits. During an interview, Lenahan highlighted the legal rights of victims shot outside of a gas station.

"Gas station owners, like other commercial property owners, have a responsibility to provide safety for those on and around the property. The owners should implement adequate safety measures that can include strong lighting and security cameras throughout the property. If a gas station owner failed to provide adequate safety measures at the time of a violent crime, such as a shooting, the owner could be liable based on negligence."

"If a victim is shot on the gas station property, they are advised to question whether the owner did everything in their power to prevent the crime from happening. If security was neglected, the gas station owner might be held liable. Additionally, if a crime is found to be reasonably foreseeable, the property owner could also be deemed responsible. One example of a foreseeable crime includes if the crime rates in the area increased, but security measures were not increased. Victims of gas station shootings and their families should gain the services of an experienced violent crime lawyer to explore all their legal rights better. Often in cases of negligence, victims may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and even receive compensation."
