Legal Options Available to Victims of Parking Lot Shootings and Their Families

Have you been injured in a parking lot shooting and wondering “can I sue for being shot“? Or has someone close to you been affected by a similar situation? Below, we have asked attorney contributor Brian Kent to offer some of his legal insight on the options available to parking lot shooting victims and their families:

“First off, it is important to know right away that all commercial property owners must provide safety to all customers and employees on-site. This includes parking lot owners. And to do this, these owners need to offer adequate security as a way to protect their patrons from preventable dangers. Adequate security often includes things like video surveillance or parking lot lighting at night, but of course, there are other alternatives. When a person is affected by a shooting, perhaps in a parking lot that did not have adequate security, the victim may be able to bring a lawsuit against the owner on the grounds that they were negligent.”

“But what people must not forget is that aside from inadequate security, the violent crime victim attorney must also show that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. For instance, if a property owner knows that crime is rising nearby, chooses not to upgrade security, and then someone is shot, he or she may be held liable for the violent crime inflicted upon the victim. And in turn, the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit now, but both inadequate security and a reasonably foreseeable crime must be proven together.”

Do any of these circumstances seem relevant to you or a loved one? Do you have further questions? If so, please do not hesitate to contact one of our experienced violent crime victim attorneys now!
