Legal Rights for Victims of Shopping Mall Shootings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has been representing victims and families of shootings for many years. Below is what Kent has to say in regards to the rights of victims injured from a mall shooting.

"Malls are public property where people go to hang out, relax and shop. It is the responsibility of mall owners, managers and securities to keep their employees and patrons safe. Security measures like installing metal detectors and conducting body and bag searches could be in place to prevent individuals from carrying weapons into a mall."

"If you or a loved one has suffered an injury, like being shot, while you were on a business property, it is within your rights to pursue legal action. Even those who were placed in dangerous situations, such as a shootout at a mall, have grounds to seek legal justice. Mall owners could be held liable for a shooting if the crime is deemed reasonably foreseeable. Victims of mall shootings are advised to consult an experienced gun crimes injury lawyer to explore their legal options."
