Shooting Victims Can Seek Justice

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard is an experienced gun violence attorney in Florida. He often helps get compensation for shooting victims and the surviving family members of victims killed in shootings. During a recent interview, Michael discussed when families could file a lawsuit for a shooting in a store parking lot. 

"Discount stores, like any other commercial business, have a legal obligation to provide a level of safety for their customers and employees on their premises. Store operators are expected to provide proper security that may include ample parking lot lighting, security cameras surrounding the property, and trained security personnel. A store owner's failure to provide adequate security may cause them to be held liable in a civil lawsuit."

"Additionally, if the crime was found to be reasonably foreseeable, victims injured or killed in a store shooting may have grounds to file a case against the negligent store owner. If the business owner failed to increase security despite knowing that criminal activity was on the rise in the area, they would be deemed negligent. Hired security or increased police patrols are just a couple of examples of increased security. An experienced gun violence attorney can help victims or their surviving family members learn more about their legal options."
