Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Mall

Attorney contributor Brian Kent, an experienced violent crime attorney, represents victims and their families in violent crime civil lawsuits. We asked Brian to provide commentary on the legal rights of victims of shot at a mall.

“Mall owners have a legal obligation to protect the patrons when on their property. To ensure the safety of customers and patrons, property owners are required to provide security. Examples of adequate security are well-lit parking lots, security guards, and cameras. If the property owner does not provide proper security, and someone is injured, the mall owner may be considered liable in court.”

“A victim’s attorney must prove the mall owner was negligent. A property owner may be deemed negligent if the crime is considered reasonably foreseeable. A crime could be considered reasonably foreseeable if previous crimes have occurred in the area or on the property. In such cases, a mall owner would be considered negligent if security improvements were not made. In cases of negligence, the victim and their family may receive monetary compensation for the damages. Victims should acquire the services of an experienced violent crime attorney to determine their rights.”
