Legal Recourse For Victims of Parking Lot Shootings

Attorney contributor Reed Martens represents violent crime victims in civil cases. Mr. Kent has shared with us his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families.

“If you own a commercial property, you have a legal duty to keep your patrons and employees safe from any reasonably foreseeable crime. In order to do this, property owners must provide adequate security on site. This could include things like installing video cameras, hiring security personnel, and providing well-lit parking lots. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security, and a shooting occurs due to their negligence, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit," explains Mr. Martens.

“Additionally, the victims lawyer must be able to prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable for the property owner to be considered liable. A reasonable foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property that had a prior history of criminal violence, but there were no security improvements were put in place. Essentially, if a victim’s lawyer can prove that the crime which injured their client was reasonable foreseeable and only occurred due to inadequate security, then the property owner may be considered responsible," concludes Mr. Martens.

If you or someone you loved has fallen victim to a parking lot shooting, you can contact a professional crime victim attorney to discuss the legal options available to you and your family.
