Attorney Commentator Bobby Thompson has experience in helping victims of violent crimes and their families find justice in civil lawsuits. He offered the following comments for victims of parking lot stabbings:
Legally all commercial property owners, of places like restaurants and parking lots, must provide adequate security on their premises. This includes measures like hiring security guards or installing video surveillance. If a property owner provides inadequate security, and someone is injured or killed in a shooting or stabbing, then the owner may be held liable for the victim’s injuries.
In addition to inadequate security, the victim’s lawyer must also be able to prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable in order to have grounds for a lawsuit. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a history of criminal violence and the owner did nothing to enhance security measures.
