Legal Options Available to Victims of Parking Lot Shootings

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau, a gun crime lawyer, represents victims injured by parking lot shootings in civil lawsuits. Mr. Pfau has generously provided us with his knowledge of the legal options available to victims and their families.

“All commercial property owners are obligated by law to protect all of their employees and patrons from preventable dangers on the site. By providing adequate security on the premises, property owners are able to protect their customers from danger. However, if a parking lot owner fails to offer adequate security (such as video surveillance or security personnel) and someone is injured in a shooting because of their negligence, then the property owner may be held liable for the crime”, explains Mr. Pfau.

He went on to say, “Nonetheless, many of these cases are complex and inadequate security is not enough to bring forth a valid lawsuit. In fact, the victim’s attorney must be able to prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a prior history of criminal violence. Essentially, if a parking lot owner knew that crime rates were increasing in the surrounding area, did nothing to improve the security, and then someone was shot outside of the complex, the owner here may be held liable. However, the crime must be deemed reasonably foreseeable and must have only occurred due to inadequate security for a victim to have grounds for a lawsuit.”
