Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson, an experienced violent crime lawyer, has represented numerous victims of shootings. In an interview, we asked Jeff to provide insight on the legal options of victims shot at a restaurant.
"Restaurant owners have a legal obligation to provide a safe environment for patrons on and around their property. To ensure the safety of patrons, restaurants owners should implement security measures, such as cameras. If a property owner does not implement security measures and a violent crime occurs, they may be deemed liable for the incident."
"In addition to negligence, a crime must be reasonably foreseeable for a property owner to be deemed liable. An example of a reasonably foreseeable crime is if crime rates in the area recently increased but no additional security measures were implemented. Victims stabbed at a restaurant should acquire the services of an experienced violent crime attorney to learn all their options."
