Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson, an experienced violent crime attorney, represents victims and their families in violent crime civil suits. Below, Jeff provided insight to help victims of shootings determine their rights.
Jeff began by addressing business owners’ legal obligation to protect their customers’ safety on and around their property. He said, “business owners have a legal obligation to provide security for their customers, guests, and visitors. Adequate security measures may include security cameras, guards, and well-lit surroundings. If club owners fail to improve security measures after previous crimes, the club owner may be held liable in a civil lawsuit.”
Jeff continued: “First, a victim should acquire the services of an experienced violent crime attorney. If their attorney can prove negligence occurred on behalf of the club owner, the victim may have a case. A club owner could be considered negligent if the crime was deemed reasonably foreseeable. A crime may be deemed foreseeable if crimes previously occurred at the club or around the area, and the owner chose not to improve security. In such cases of negligence and foreseeable crimes, the victim and their family may be eligible for monetary support towards damages for the victim or a family member.”
