Can I Sue For Being Shot in a Parking Lot?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson, an experienced violent crime lawyer, represents victims of shootings in civil lawsuits. During a recent discussion, Bobby explained when victims can sue for being shot in a parking lot

"Commercial business owners are legally required to protect patrons and their employees both inside their store and in their parking lot. This may include, but is not limited to, maintaining a well-lit parking lot and installing video surveillance that covers the outside perimeter. When a property owner fails to provide adequate security and someone is injured on their property, the property owner may be held liable for the victim's injuries."

"However, inadequate security on its own would not be sufficient reasons to file a lawsuit against the property owner. A victim's lawyer would need to prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable or could have been predicted by the business owner. If the business or location had a history of criminal activity, the business owner would be responsible for increasing its security measures to reduce the risks on its property. Victims of parking lot shootings should consult with an experienced violent crime lawyer to determine if they have a case based on security negligence."
