Legal Recourse for Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson works closely with victims and families of violent crimes. He commented below with some points on the legal scope of options available to victims and their families should they choose to take this path.

“Violent shootings can often lead to death or, in seemingly more fortunate instances, leave survivors with injuries. Should a victim manage to fight and live through their injuries, the road to recovery can be a long journey.

Families of the victims can be left to settle the medical debt and provide long-term care if the direct victim of the shooting is left impaired, whether physically, mentally, or emotionally. As one can imagine, this kind of pressure can be burdensome and even unmanageable for all involved.

Those affected by shootings may choose to file a civil lawsuit intended to recoup compensatory damages to help relieve this kind of weight.  Whether the incident happened at a business or other property, the issue of liability will be an important point of argument. Indeed, some form of proof will need to be shown in court for a judge to decide if and how to award damages.

Many aspects of security will need to be addressed. Attorneys must treat subjects that describe the area where did the shooting took place and if there were any other shootings in the same area. Even if the incident took place on private property, there is usually a form of liability that the owner assumes should a violent crime occur there.

Discussing your options with a legal representative and gaining knowledge of civil litigation laws may help you decide if you want to begin a civil suit,” describes Gibson.
