Attorney Commentator Bobby Thompson represents victims of violent crimes and their families find justice in civil lawsuits. He has offered his insight on the legal options to these victims:
Commercial property owners are legally obligated to uphold the safety of the employees and patrons on their property. Property owners must provide adequate security to ensure violent crime is prevented. This may include hiring security guards or installing video surveillance. If inadequate security is provided, and someone is injured on the premises, the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner.
However, the crime must also be deemed reasonably foreseeable in order for the victim to be able to sue the property owner. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a prior history of criminal violence, but no security improvements were made.
