Legal Rights of Victims Shot at a Restaurant

Our attorney contributor Phil Edwards is an experienced violent crime attorney that has represented victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. During an interview, Phil provided commentary on the rights of victims injured during a shooting

“Owners of commercial property, such as restaurants, have a legal obligation to provide a level of safety for customers in or around their property. Property owners could maintain this level of safety by hiring security guards, installing surveillance cameras inside and outside of the structure, and offering a properly lit environment. If the owner does not uphold this obligation and someone is injured on their property, they could be held liable in a civil lawsuit.”

“If a crime is deemed reasonably foreseeable, the property owner may be considered liable. An example could be if a previous crime occurred recently in or around the restaurant, yet the owner failed to increase the security measures. In such cases like these, the property owner could be deemed negligent. In cases of negligence, the victims, as well as their families, should know they may have proper cause for a lawsuit and are advised to explore the services of an experienced violent crime attorney.”
