Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Gas Station

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson has represented countless victims involved in violent shootings and provided essential civil lawsuit information. Below, Bobby discusses the proper rights of victims shot on commercial property:

"A responsibility of property owners that can sometimes be overlooked is the overall protection and safety of their customers and patrons. In order to keep violent crimes from occurring, the measures in place must be detailed and effective. For example, security cameras, as well as guards and attentive employees, can all have a part in preventing danger. Victims and their families may have grounds for a civil lawsuit if someone was indeed injured on a property where security was not a priority."

"Property owners may be considered liable for damages when an individual is hurt on their premises and the crime can be foreseen, or ownership is negligent. As crimes and violence rise in an area, managers and owners of establishments must act with force and see to it that their land is not the next crime scene. If their security measures are not enhanced to a certain degree, a crime can be seen as reasonably foreseeable. In turn, victims may be eligible for compensation if a lawyer can demonstrate that the violent act happened because of a lack of safety."
