Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Seasonal Event

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced violent crimes attorney licensed in Pennsylvania. He has represented numerous victims of shootings along with their families in civil lawsuits. During a recent interview, Brian provided his insight regarding the legal rights of victims shot outside at a seasonal event

"Property owners have a legal obligation of protecting customers and patrons during seasonal events take place on their property. Not only should the property owners do their best to protect those on their property, but the event organizers should monitor that sufficient security has been put into place. Security measures like security guards, good lighting throughout the premises, and experienced staff members can help prevent crimes from occurring. However, if a patron is injured on the property during the event, the owner or event coordinator can be held liable in a lawsuit."

"In cases of shootings, property owners and event organizers can be considered liable if the crime is deemed reasonably foreseeable. If crimes are repeatedly occurring in an area and an owner chooses not to enforce a high standard of security, the crime can be seen as foreseeable. Additionally, the owner and event organizer could be considered negligent if the crime could have been prevented. Victims and their families should employ an experienced violent crimes attorney for guidance regarding filing a civil lawsuit."
