Legal Options for Stabbing Victims in a Convenience Store

Attorney Commentator Mike Pfau has experience in helping victims of violent crimes and their families find justice. He offered the following comments on victims of convenience store stabbings:

“Businesses have a legal obligation to maintain a safe environment for customers and employees. This includes providing adequate security to prevent robberies and other crimes from occurring. If a store is in a bad neighborhood or if it has a history of crime, they must install additional security such as metal detectors or security cameras.”

Bobby continued by saying “An important question to ask after a stabbing occurred is if it could be considered reasonably foreseeable. If a crime is reasonably foreseeable and a store does nothing to prevent it then the store may be held as negligent. In these situations, a victim or their family may file a lawsuit and attempt to recover damages for the store’s negligence.”
