Legal Options of Victims of Shootings at a Restaurant

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan, an experienced violent crime attorney, has represented victims of shootings in lawsuits. In an interview, Kevin highlighted the legal options of victims shot at a restaurant to help victims determine their legal rights.

Restaurant owners must protect any patrons on or around their property. It is a legal obligation of the property owner, and the owner must consider all safety options to ensure patrons’ protection. There are various security measures that can be implemented to protect those on or around the restaurant’s property. If someone is injured on the property, and the owner did not have preventative measures in place, the owner may be deemed liable.

A restaurant owner could be considered liable if a victim’s lawyer can prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable. If a crime is deemed reasonably foreseeable, then the restaurant owner will be considered negligent in the violent crime that occurred and therefore liable for any injury accrued by victims. In cases of negligence, the victim should know they may have grounds to file a civil lawsuit.
