Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Restaurant

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan works with victims of violent crimes in civil suits. In an interview with Kevin, we asked him to share insight on the legal options of victims shot at a restaurant to help victims determine their legal rights.

“Restaurant owners have a legal responsibility to provide their customers’ safety on their property. Therefore, property owners are responsible for providing adequate security to ensure safety. An example of adequate security is surveillance cameras. If proper security measures are not in place, then a property owner can be considered negligent in a civil lawsuit.”

“Victims and their family should secure an experienced crime victim attorney’s services to learn their rights. If the victim’s lawyer can prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable, the property owner may be considered negligent. For example, a crime would be deemed foreseeable if there is a lack of increased security, but the property owner is aware of previous criminal activity at the restaurant or in the area. In negligence cases, the victims and their families may have a claim for damages.
