Legal Recourse For Victims of Parking Lot Shootings

Attorney Commentator Bobby Thompson has experience in helping victims of violent crimes and their families find justice in civil lawsuits. He offered the following comments for victims of parking lot shootings:

Commercial property owners are legally obligated to provide adequate security on their premises. Adequate security may include things like security cameras and well-lit parking lots. Failure to do so may result in a negligent security lawsuit, depending on the circumstances.

In order for a violent crime victim to have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner, the crime must have been reasonably foreseeable and the property must have had inadequate security measures. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a previous history of shootings and stabbings, yet the owner did nothing to improve security.
