Can Commercial Property Owners Be Responsible For Violent Crime on Their Properties?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of www.CrimeVictim.Attorney works closely with apartment building shooting victims so they can receive the financial compensation they deserve. Mr. Kent shares his thoughts on the legal options available to these victims and their families.
“Owners of places such as bars, nightclubs, apartment complexes have a legal duty to ensure that their patrons and employees are safe from preventable violent crimes. In order to establish this safety, property owners must provide adequate security on their premises. If a shooting happens due to negligent security, the property owner may be held liable for the crime”, stated Mr. Kent.
He went on to explain, “In addition, the victim’s lawyer must prove that the shooting was reasonably foreseeable. A crime may be considered reasonably foreseeable if the property or the surrounding area has had a prior history of violent crime, and no security improvements were made. So if a reasonably foreseeable shooting occurs due to inadequate security, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit.”
If you or a loved one has been a victim to an apartment building shooting, you can learn more about your legal options by reviewing your case with a crime victim attorney.
