Can Parking Lot Owners Be Held Liable For Violent Crime On Their Properties?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of https://CrimeVictim.Attorney works closely with victims and their families injured or killed in parking lot shootings. Mr. Kent has offered to share his knowledge on the legal options available to these victims and their families.
Every commercial property owner has a legal duty to protect their patrons and employees from any preventable hazards. To do so, property owners must supply adequate security on their premises. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security, and a crime such as a shooting occurs due to their negligence, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner.
However, in order for a property owner to be held liable for violent crime on their property, the crime must have been reasonably foreseeable. For example, if a shooting occurs at a property with a previous history of violent crime and no security improvements were made, then the shooting may be considered reasonably foreseeable. Overall, in order for a property owner to be seen as liable for a crime, security must be considered inadequate and the crime must be deemed reasonably foreseeable.
