Lawsuits for Families of Fatal Shooting Victim

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced gun crime lawyer representing shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Brian provided information concerning the family's right to pursue a lawsuit following a fatal shooting at a restaurant

"Restaurant and other business owners are responsible for making ensuring their customers and employees are safe. Sadly, violence can strike at any type of establishment. This is why premises security is so important. Restaurant owners have a legal duty of care to provide a level of safety in order to reduce the risks of violence on their property. Deterrents such as security cameras, proper lighting, and trained staff can help to prevent certain criminal acts, such as shootings. If a violent crime, like a fatal shooting, occurs, an investigation should focus on both the suspect as well as the property's safety."

"Some restaurant shootings may not have happened if not for negligence by the property owner. This could include failing to implement or improve security after previous issues with violence. In such security negligence cases, restaurant shooting victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit. In cases of death, the shooting victim's families can learn more about their legal options by discussing their case details with an experienced gun crime lawyer."
