Can Restaurant Owners Be Held Liable For Violent Crime on Their Properties?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent at crimevictim.Attorney represents violent crime victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent has shared his knowledge on the legal options open to these victims and their families.
“All commercial property owners are required keep their patrons and employees safe from any preventable dangers. To fulfill this requirement, property owners must provide adequate security on site. This may include installing video surveillance, having well-lit parking lots, or hiring security guards. If security is inadequate and someone is injured in a violent crime such as a shooting, then the property owner may be seen as responsible for that crime”, states Mr. Kent.
He continued: “Inadequate security is not the only factor necessary to have a valid security negligence case. Additionally, the victim’s attorney must prove that the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable. Basically, if a shooting occurs at a restaurant that has a previous history of criminal violence, but no security improvements were in place, then the crime may be deemed reasonably foreseeable. Essentially, a violent crime victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner if the crime only occurred due to inadequate security, and if it was considered reasonably foreseeable.”
If you or a loved one has fallen victim to a restaurant shooting, please contact an experienced crime victim attorney for legal advice.
