Legal Options for Victims of Shootings and Their Families

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson, an experienced violent crime attorney who has represented numerous victims and their families in violent crime civil lawsuits, provides commentary on the legal rights of victims of violent shootings and their families.

“Hotel owners have a legal obligation to protect the patrons in and around their property. To ensure the safety of patrons, property owners must provide adequate security. Examples of security are well-lit parking lots, security cameras, and guards. If proper security is not provided, and someone is injured on private property, the owner may be considered liable by the court of law.”

“To ensure the victim has a case, a victim’s attorney must prove there was negligence on behalf of the business owner. An example of a property owner being negligent would be if the crime were reasonably foreseeable. A crime could be deemed reasonably foreseeable if previous crimes have occurred in the area. In such cases, a property owner would be considered negligent if security improvements were not made following these crimes. In cases of negligence, the victim and their family may receive monetary compensation for the damages.
