Filing Lawsuits for Fatal Gas Station Shootings

Attorney commentator Brian Kent has experience providing legal guidance to shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits. During a recent discussion, Brian offered the following helpful information for families of fatal shooting victims seeking financial compensation

"Commercial property owners, such as gas stations, are legally held responsible for providing adequate security on their property. Security measures may include video monitoring cameras in addition to sufficient lighting in parking lots. If a gas station owner neglects its duty of care and victims are harmed on the property, the can be deemed liable in a negligent security civil lawsuit, depending on specifics of the incident."

"Families of fatal shooting victims may have grounds to file a lawsuit against a negligent property owner if the crime was reasonably foreseeable and the property had insufficient security at the time of the incident. A foreseeable risk can include an uptick in crime in the area without the improvement of the security by the property owner."

"By retaining the guidance of an experienced shooting victim attorney, the victim's family can know their legal options and increase their goal for full compensation. The attorney will prove the property owner failed to reduce the foreseeable risk with adequate security."
