Legal Options for Families of Fatal Stabbings

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville has years of experience as a violent crime victim lawyer representing victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Laurence recently discussed the legal options available to families of fatal stabbing victims

"Public transportation systems, such as trains and subways, are legally obligated to ensure their properties are safe from preventable dangers that may harm their passengers and staff. This especially includes any foreseeable violent crime, such as stabbings and shootings. Security measures may include video monitoring cameras, proper lighting, and patrolling security officers. In the event that passengers are injured or worse killed in a violent stabbing, it's important to determine if the transportation system offered adequate security or if the stabbing was enabled by negligence."

"Unfortunately, some subway stabbings only happen due to the negligence of the port authority. This may be from failing to improve security after prior incidents of violent crime. Metal detectors and additional security guards or patrolling officers could be added if the crime was increasing in the area. In many cases involving negligence, violent crime victims or their families may have grounds to pursue a lawsuit. As always, it is recommended to reach out to an experienced violent crime victim lawyer to better understand the legal options available."
