Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Restaurant

Attorney contributor Brian Kent, an experienced violent crime lawyer, represents victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. We asked Brian to share his thoughts on the legal rights of victims shot at a restaurant.

“Restaurant owners have a legal obligation to protect those on and around their property. To ensure the safety of their customers, property owners must provide adequate security to prevent violent crime. A few examples of adequate security include security cameras, security guards, and well-lit areas. If restaurant owners fail to provide ample protection and someone is injured, the victim and their family may have grounds for a civil lawsuit.”

“A property owner could be considered liable if the crime is committed was considered foreseeable. A crime may be considered foreseeable if previous violent crimes occurred, and there were no security improvements. If the victim’s lawyer can prove the victim was in due to inadequate protection, the property owner may be found liable. In such cases of negligence, the crime could be deemed reasonably foreseeable.”
