Filing Lawsuits For Fatal Train Shootings

Attorney contributor Reed Martens provides legal aid to families of victims fatally shot. As an experienced gun crime lawyer, he has helped numerous victims of train shootings along with their families file civil lawsuits. Recently he provided some information for families of victims fatally shot on trains.

"Public transit, including trains, have a legal obligation to provide both the passengers and employees a safe traveling experience. This could include performing safety measures such as metal detectors, bag searches, patrolling security guards, and monitoring cameras. If security preventatives have been neglected, management could be held liable for failing to reduce the risk of preventative crime, such as shootings. In cases involving security neglect, victims or the families of slain victims may have reason to file a lawsuit."

"Train shooting victims or their families should secure an experienced gun crime lawyer to determine if the crime was reasonably foreseeable. If previous acts of violence had occurred on or around the train's property, they would be responsible for increasing their security. Victims or the families of victims fatally shot on trains or other modes of public transportation may even recover compensation for their losses."
