Filing a Lawsuit For Families of Victims Fatally Shot

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents families of victims fatally shot in civil lawsuits. Mr. Banville recently highlighted some of the requirements for filing a lawsuit for families of victims fatally shot at restaurants. 

"Restaurants, like all commercial property owners, have a legal duty to keep their patrons and employees safe from any reasonably foreseeable crime, such as shootings. To do this, property owners should equip their premises with adequate security. This may include installing surveillance cameras, maintaining a well-lit parking lot, and having a proper emergency procedure in place if a crime occurs. If the property owner fails to provide adequate security and a shooting occurs, they could be considered negligent."

"In addition, if the crime is found to be reasonably foreseeable, the property owner can be considered liable. If the restaurant had a history of violence in the area but failed to increase its security measures, the crime could be deemed foreseeable. The family of victims shot and killed at a restaurant are encouraged to contact an experienced gun injury lawyer. There are often legal options that can lead to them recovering financial compensation."
