Legal Options for Victims of Shootings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents victims and their families in civil lawsuits involving violent crimes. Recently Brian shared his insight for those who might wonder if there are settlements available after being shot on commercial property, such as a convenient store.

"The premises liability law is designed to hold commercial property owners accountable for the safety and well-being of their customers. Unfortunately, crimes can occur anywhere at any given time. However, if a shooting occurs on commercial property, the owners can be held partially responsible if someone is hurt or killed. Property owners have a legal responsibility to provide preventative measures to reduce the risk of violent crimes. Adequate security can include well-lit parking lots, security cameras with video surveillance, and even hired security guards. If proper security measures are not provided, and a violent crime, such as a shooting, takes place, the property owner can be considered negligent."

"A violent crime attorney will need to prove that the property owner committed an act of negligence by not providing appropriate security measures. The attorney will try to prove it was a reasonably foreseeable crime or that it was preventable. This could include an incident in an area with increasing criminal activity where the property owner failed to improve its security.

When a shooting occurs, many medical costs and other expenses will arise for the victim and their family. By filing a civil suit against a property owner who acted negligently, compensation may help with the costs incurred from the incident. Hiring an experienced violent crime attorney will ensure you and your family choose the best legal options."
