Legal Options Available to Victims of Restaurant Shootings

Attorney contributor Kim Dougherty specializes in victims of violent crime in civil cases. Below she has offered to share some of her legal advice on the potential options available to restaurant shooting victims and their families.

Essentially, commercial property owners are required by law to ensure the safety of their employees and patrons on or around the premises. In order to protect their patrons from preventable dangers, these owners must be able to provide adequate security on or near the site. The bottom line is that if a shooting occurs at a restaurant with inadequate security, the property owner may be held liable for the violent crime and the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit.

However, inadequate security alone is not enough to hold a property owner liable for a violent crime. The victim’s attorney must also prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a prior history of criminal violence. Overall, inadequate security must be accompanied by a reasonably foreseeable crime in order for a violent crime victim to bring forth a lawsuit against a property owner.

If you or someone you love has fallen victim to a restaurant shooting, you can contact an experienced attorney. Please do not hesitate to reach out to one of our crime victim attorneys to discuss all legal options on the matter.
