Legal Options of Victims Shot in the Parking Lot a Restaurant

Attorney contributor Jesse Forbes, an experienced violent crimes attorney, licensed in West Virginia, has represented numerous victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. Below, Paul provides commentary on victims’ legal rights and their families who have been injured in a restaurant shooting.

"Providing a safe environment to the patrons on and around one’s restaurant’s property is a legal obligation. Restaurant owners must do their best to protect those on their property. A restaurant owner can provide a safe environment by providing security measures (e.g., security guards, well-lit parking lots, and more). If a patron is injured on the restaurant’s property, the owner may be deemed liable in a civil lawsuit."

"In cases of shootings, a restaurant owner could be considered liable if the court of law deems to crime reasonably foreseeable. An example of a foreseeable crime would be if crimes have occurred in the area, but the owner did not increase security measures to provide a safe environment. In such cases, the restaurant owner could be deemed negligent. Victims and their families should know that they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation for damages in negligence cases."
