Legal Options For Victims of Deli Shooting

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville, an experienced criminal violence lawyer, represents victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. In an interview with Laurence, he provided his insight about shootings on commercial property.

When asked about property owners’ responsibility to uphold safety, Laurence said: “Property owners are obligated to uphold the safety of those on their property, especially to prevent violent crimes. Additionally, property owners must provide adequate security to ensure violent crime is prevented. To ensure safety, property owners may create a well-lit atmosphere, install security cameras, and hire security. If ample security is not provided by a property owner and someone is injured on-site, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner.”

Laurence continued by saying, “The property owner is only liable if the crime is considered foreseeable or the property owner was negligent. For example, a crime is foreseeable if previous violent crimes occurred on their property and were ignored with no improvements to security. If the crime in which the victim was injured can be proven by their lawyer as occurring solely because of inadequate security, therefore, reasonably foreseeable the property owner may be found liable.”
