Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Grocery Store?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is an experienced gunshot injury attorney who represents victims of shootings in civil lawsuits. During an interview, Bobby went over some of the reasons victims could sue for being shot at a grocery store

"Commercial property owners, such as grocery stores, have to abide by premise laws that hold them accountable for providing a safe environment for their patrons and employees. This obligation can include security measures such as well-lit parking lots in addition to proper surveillance equipment. These measures are to reduce the risk of preventable crimes, such as shootings and stabbings. However, if a property owner neglects to maintain a secure property, they can be held liable."

"If a victim is injured during a violent crime on a grocery store property, the victim and their family have the legal right to question the existing safety measures. If the area or establishment had seen an increase in crime or violence, the grocery store owner would be responsible for increasing its security. If a property owner failed to improve their security and a crime took place, it could be considered foreseeable and would offer grounds for the victim to pursue a civil lawsuit. 

"An experienced gunshot injury attorney will work to gather all the necessary evidence to prove the property owner was indeed negligent, allowing the victim and their family to get the compensation they deserve."
