Legal Options for Shooting Victims in Establishments

Reed Martens, attorney and contributor to the Legal Herald regularly works with victims of violent crimes in civil lawsuits. The following comment from Attorney Martens explains the legal options available to these victims.

"No matter where you live, each state has regulations relating to premises liability law tying property owners to their security systems. Most importantly, these laws usually state that adequate safety measures must be in place for their customers. For instance, providing well-lit parking lots, video surveillance, and body guards are essential to offering a safe place where guests can frequent, especially for night club goers.

If a crime like a shooting occurs at a bar or club and no security measures were in place, the property owner can be found negligent. This is because the property owner did not implement security measures against a reasonably foreseeable crime. A civil attorney will need proof of the negligence to begin a private civil suit against the owner.

Whether someone lives or dies after being victim to a shooting, various obstacles for recovery will follow. Medical bill can quickly accumulate and families of the victims are usually the payee for these associated costs. Your steps to secure compensation depend on what you need, how much you need and the fault of a property owner for the crime committed," Mr. Martens described.
