Legal Recourse for Victims of Stabbings at Apartment Buildings

Attorney Brian Kent is a contributor to the Legal Herald who often works with victims of violent crimes in civil cases. Mr. Kent has generously offered to share his insight on the legal process when victims decide to begin a private civil suit.

“All property owners have a legal duty to provide adequate security to ensure the safety of their guests, customers, employees, and residents. They should have security cameras installed, well-lit parking areas, and on-site officers to help with safety. Crimes that happen on the premises where someone is injured can cause the property owner legal problems, should a victim choose to pursue action.

A situation where a person is harmed during a crime that occurs on the property and adequate security was not in place, despite the owner knowing about previous crimes, is referred to as reasonably foreseeable risk. In this case, an owner can be found negligent and will receive partial punishment, in the form of compensation to a victim, for allowing this risk to be present.

A crime victim attorney must prove that an act of negligence occurred and what damages can be requested during a civil case. For example, lost wages, medical costs, therapy expenses, loss of enjoyment of life, and in some cases; funeral expenses, can all be awarded to a victim or a family member of a victim by the court,”  described Attorney Kent.
