Legal Recourse For Victims of Shootings on Commercial Property

Attorney contributor Reed Martens, a violent crimes attorney, has represented numerous victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. Reed has provided his insight on the rights of victims shot on commercial property.

"Every commercial property owner has a legal duty to keep their customers and employees safe while on their property. To do this, the property owners should provide adequate security measures, which may include installing surveillance cameras and having proper lighting both inside and out of the building. If someone falls victim to a crime on their property and proper security was not provided, the victim and their family may have reasons to pursue a civil lawsuit based on neglect."

"In addition to the negligent security measures, a victim's attorney must prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable. An example of a foreseeable crime could include one that occurs following a property owner's lack of increasing the security when they are aware of an increase in crime within the area. At this point, it is a good idea to seek the representation of an experienced violent crimes attorney."
