Legal Options for Victims of Violent Crimes
Brian Kent, contributor for the Legal Herald and attorney at CrimeVictim.Attorney, works with victims of violent crimes in civil litigations. Below, he shared his insight on legal options for those injured in gas station crimes.
Attorney Kent explains, “Property owners and business owners have some form of legal obligation to their customers and visitors in pretty much every state. This law makes them responsible for the safety and security of people on the premises. To provide adequate security they may be required to have well-lit parking lots, security guards, security cameras, and other forms of security measures. Failure to do so could hold the business or owner liable for their part in any crime that takes place on-site.”
Kent continued, “In order to appropriately prove that negligence occurred, your attorney will need to conduct extensive research into the case. The attorney will need to find proof that a reasonably foreseeable crime was committed. They may also need to determine that a property or business owner knew about crimes like stabbings in the area and chose to do nothing to improve safety measures on their property.
When a victim of a crime decides to file a personal injury lawsuit in a civil court, proving a property owner failed to appropriate security will be at the hands of a crime victim attorney. Proving an act of negligence occurred can aid in securing a compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and other injury related expenses,” states Kent.
