Financial Compensation For Victims of Mall Shootings

Brian Kent, an experienced violent crime lawyer, helps victims and their families involved in violent crimes receive the financial compensation they deserve. Below, Kent helps victims determine if they can sue for being shot.

Commercial property owners must provide adequate security on their premises, such as hiring security guards and establishing well-lit parking lots. If a property owner fails to do this, and a violent crime injures someone on their property, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the owner.

In addition to inadequate security, in order for a property owner to be held liable for a victim's injuries, the crime must have been reasonably foreseeable. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a prior history of crime, but the owner did not improve security measures.
