Are Crime Victims Eligible To Financial Compensation?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney adds some thoughts on how the civil court system can help violent crime victims:

When a victim gets injured or killed in a violent incident on someone else’s property, it’s important both to arrest and prosecute the offender and to determine if the property owner is at fault for failing to prevent the incident. Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises safe from foreseeable dangers. In some cases, property owners can be held liable for shootings and stabbings if they failed to have adequate security measures in place.

Additionally, bar owners can sometimes be held liable if they continued to serve alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person who ended up injuring someone else that night.

In order to determine if a property owner’s negligence is to blame for a violent incident, it’s important for violent crime victims to have their case reviewed by an experienced crime victim lawyer.
