Filing Lawsuits For Victims Shot at a Restaurant

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard has years of experience as a shooting victim attorney. He has represented numerous victims shot at restaurants, helping them get the compensation they deserve. He recently sat down to discuss the legal rights of victims and how much can they can sue for being shot at a restaurant.

"Restaurants are establishments that people often go to enjoy a meal with their friends and families. Violent dangers are often far from their minds. To keep these dangers away from the patrons and the staff, restaurant owners are obliged to fulfill a duty of care. This can be done by having surveillance cameras and sufficient lighting in order to reduce the risk of criminal activity, such as shootings. This legal obligation is to ensure the safety of the patrons and staff. Failure to uphold this obligation can leave the restaurant owner liable due to negligence."

"In the event of a shooting, a victim is urged to employ the legal representation of an experienced shooting victim attorney. The attorney will need to prove there was negligence on behalf of the restaurant owner, in addition to deeming the crime foreseeable. A crime committed on a property where security was lacking despite knowing of previous incidents or increased risks would be foreseeable. In cases of negligence, the victim and their family may even receive monetary compensation for their damages after filing a civil lawsuit against the negligent property owner."
