Settlements for Fatal Restaurant Shootings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has years of experience as a shooting victim attorney. He has represented numerous victims and their surviving family members, helping them get the compensation they deserve. Brian recently sat down to discuss the legal rights of the families of victims fatally shot in a restaurant and how much they can recover during a lawsuit. 

"Restaurants and takeout restaurants are places people go without worrying about dangers, such as shootings. However, just like other commercial property owners, restaurant owners have a duty of care to minimize these threats protecting their customers and employees. To lessen the likelihood of criminal activity, restaurants can install security cameras and provide adequate lighting. If the restaurant owner fails to maintain security precautions, they may be held accountable for security negligence."

"If a shooting occurs on the property, a victim is advised to seek legal counsel from an experienced shooting victim attorney. The attorney will gather evidence to prove that the restaurant owner was negligent and establish the crime was foreseeable. It could be deemed foreseeable if the crime occurred on a property where security was insufficient despite prior incidences of increasing dangers. After bringing a civil lawsuit against the negligent property owner, the victim or their family may be entitled to monetary compensation for their losses."
