Filing Lawsuits for Fatal Gas Station Shootings

Attorney contributor Reed Martens represents shooting victims and their families in civil cases. Reed recently shared a more in-depth look into the legal options available for the families of victims fatally shot at gas stations, including when they can file a civil lawsuit for compensation.

"Owners of gas stations, like other commercial property owners, are legally obligated to provide a safe environment for their customers and employees. It is critical for the owners to maintain proper safety measures around the property. These measures may include ample lot lighting and working security cameras. If a gas station owner neglects the safety of their property and a violent incident, such as a shooting, occurs, they may be held accountable."

"In the event that a victim is fatally shot at a gas station, their family should seek guidance from an experienced shooting victim lawyer. The attorney will assist in determining if the owner did everything possible in their means to prevent the crime from occurring. If the gas station owner was aware of increasing violence on the property or in the neighborhood, they would be accountable for increasing their security to attempt to reduce the risk. Victims or their families may have grounds to initiate a civil lawsuit and seek compensation in many negligence circumstances."
