According to Fox 29, a shooting occurred inside the North Philadelphia corner store located on the 600 block of Diamond Street Philadelphia, PA 19122.
A shooting erupted inside the store just before 4 p.m. on Tuesday, February 1, 2022. Police arrived to find a man with three gunshot wounds in his legs. He was taken to a nearby hospital and is said to be in stable condition. The second victim was found in the street and had been shot in the foot. He was also taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Attorney contributor Brian Kent has represented countless victims injured in violent shootings. Recently he provided essential information for victims , including their rights to sue for being shot on commercial property.
"A responsibility of a commercial property owner that can often be overlooked is their legal duty to provide reasonable safety to their customers and patrons. In order to reduce the risk of violent crimes, their security measures must be detailed and effective. For instance, security cameras, attentive employees, and sufficient lighting can all help prevent dangers. Victims and their families might have grounds to file a civil lawsuit if someone injured on a commercial property where security was neglected."
"Furthermore, commercial property owners may be held liable for damages if an individual is injured during a foreseeable crime. As crime and violent occurrences rise in an area, property owners must provide additional security. However, if their security measures are not increased, a crime that occurs may be seen as reasonably foreseeable. In turn, victims may be eligible for financial compensation if their attorney can prove the crime happened due to security negligence."
