Filing Lawsuits For Fatal Stabbings on Public Transit

Attorney contributor Brian Kent frequently represents victims and their families following violent crimes on public transit. Below, Brian highlighted when a family can sue for a fatal stabbing on public transit

"Each state has laws in place to protect victims from violent crime. The premises liability law ensures that property owners provide appropriate security for visitors, guests, and staff. Owners can offer protection to people visiting their property by having well-lit areas, security personnel, and video surveillance. These measures should be in place to reduce the risk of preventative violence like stabbings, shootings, and assault. Without sufficient security, a property owner can be found negligent."

"If a property owner failed to make reasonable upgrades to their security despite knowing of an increase in crime, crimes that follow could be deemed as reasonably foreseeable. In cases involving foreseeable crimes and security neglect, victims or their families may have grounds to file a civil lawsuit against the property owner."

"An experienced stabbing victim attorney will help families of victims fatally stabbed file a stabbing injury lawsuit. After compiling the evidence, the court will decide the amount of compensation to be awarded to the victim's family."
