Legal Options for the Families of Victims Shot in a Parking Lot

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced violent crimes attorney and represents victims of shootings in civil lawsuits. Below, Brian provides insight into the legal rights of victims' families shot in a parking lot.

"Property owners have a legal obligation to uphold the safety of those on and around their property. To ensure the safety of patrons, property owners should implement security measures, including, but limited to, cameras, guards, and strong lighting. When a shooting occurs, if proper security measures were not implemented, a property owner could be deemed liable for the violent crime."

"Victims families should question if the property had security measures and did everything possible to prevent the shooting from occurring. If a crime is reasonably foreseeable, the property owner may be deemed liable due to negligence. An example of a foreseeable crime is if incidents occurred recently, but security measures were not updated. Families of victims of shootings should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit in cases of negligence. A victim's family should secure the services of an experienced violent crime attorney to learn all their legal options."
