Can Lounge Owners Be Responsible For Violent Crime on Their Properties?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of crimevictim.Attorney represents victims and their families who have been injured or killed in lounge stabbings. Mr. Kent has generously offered to share his knowledge on the legal options available to these victims.
“Those who own commercial properties are legally required to keep their patrons and employees safe from any preventable dangers. Providing adequate security is apart of this legal duty. Adequate security may include hiring security personnel, establishing well-lit parking lots, and installing video surveillance. If a property owner fails to provide adequate protection, and a stabbing occurs due to their negligence, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the owner”, stated Mr. Kent.
“Inadequate security is not the only factor necessary for a security negligence case. The victim’s attorney must also prove that the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable for there to be a valid lawsuit. Essentially, if a stabbing occurs at a parking lot with a prior history of criminal violence, yet no security improvements were made, then the crime may be considered reasonably foreseeable. Overall, a violent crime victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner if the crime only occurred due to inadequate security, and if it was considered reasonably foreseeable”, concluded Mr. Kent.
If you or a loved one has experienced a situation similar to this one, then you can discuss your legal options with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
