Legal Rights of Victims Shot Outside a Restaurant

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has represented victims of violent crimes and their families in civil suits for many years. Brian provided some of the rights of victims shot outside a restaurant.

"Restaurant owners, even fast-food restaurants, have a legal duty to uphold the safety of those that enter onto their property. To best ensure the safety of those on and around their restaurant, owners should provide adequate security measures. A couple of examples of preventative security steps could include surveillance cameras and properly lit parking lots. If adequate security measures are not found to have been in place during a crime, the restaurant owner could be deemed negligent in a court of law."

"Victims of violent crimes and their families are encouraged to acquire the aid of an experienced violent crimes attorney. If a victim's attorney can prove the crime was foreseeable, victims could make a claim against the restaurant owner based on negligence. One example of a foreseeable crime is if a restaurant owner or management had knowledge of previous crimes in the area but did not take the proper steps to increase security on their property. In cases such as this, a victim or their families could receive compensation for damages."
