Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Restaurant?

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan is a gun crimes injury lawyer who represents victims of criminal violence and their families in civil lawsuits. Kevin recently discussed some of the legal rights available to restaurant shooting victims, including their right to sue if shot at a restaurant.

"Restaurant owners have a legal responsibility to maintain an adequate level of security on their property to prevent violent crime. When a restaurant owner fails to provide adequate security and someone is injured on their property, the victim could have sufficient grounds to sue the property owner."

"If the crime was deemed foreseeable, or if the shooting occurred at a restaurant that had a history of violence but did nothing to amp up their security, the restaurant owner could be held accountable for the crime. Shooting victims and the families of those shot and killed at restaurants should consult with an experienced gun crimes injury lawyer to explore their legal options for justice."
