Legal Recourse For Victims of Restaurant Shootings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents victims of criminal violence and their families in civil lawsuits. We asked Brian to share his thoughts on the legal rights of victims shot at a restaurant.

“Commercial property owners are legally obligated to keep their patrons and employees safe while on site. In order to do this property owners must provide adequate security which includes things security guards and video surveillance. If property owners fail to do this, and someone is injured or killed on their property, then he or she may be held liable for the crime,” states Brian.

He continued: “In addition to inadequate security, the crime must be considered reasonably foreseeable in order for a victim to have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property where previous violent crimes took place and the ower did nothing to enhance security measures.”
