Legal Recourse For Victims Injured in Parking Lot Shootings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent works with victims of violent crimes. He has contributed some of his own legal advice on the crucial steps that violent crime victims and their families should take.

Essentially, property owners are required by law to offer safety to all patrons and employees who roam the premises on a daily basis. This means that property owners, like a store owner, should have proper security installed at all times. Video surveillance or enhanced lighting at night may suffice, but of course, there are other options. So when violent crimes, like a shooting occur, a property owner may be held liable for any injuries sustained because the crime could have been prevented if precaution was taken.

Nevertheless, a property owner will not be made liable just because they failed to produce proper security. A crime victim attorney must prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable in addition to the presence of inadequate security. For example, if a store owner is cognizant that shootings have increased in the area and decides not to upgrade security, he or she may be held liable because there was a lack of security and the crime was reasonably foreseeable in nature.

If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a store shooting, please do not hesitate to contact one of our crime victim attorneys today!
