Can I Sue for Being Shot at a Convenience Store?

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan works with victims injured or killed in gun violence. Recently he shed light on some of the requirements necessary to file a lawsuit against negligent parties. This commentary may help answer questions for victims of shootings, such as, "Can I sue for being shot at a convenience store?"

"By law, property owners, including convenience store owners, have an obligation to provide safety to all of their customers and staff. The basic security measures may include video surveillance, sufficient parking lot lighting at night, but there are many others. When violent crimes, like a shooting, take place on the property of a convenience store, the property owner may be held liable. An experienced shooting victim lawyer will need to prove that the convenience store owner failed to take proper precaution in regards to property security."

"Additionally, the lawyer will try to prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable. This could mean that if the property owner knew of the increasing crime rates in the area but neglected to increase their security. In negligent cases such as this, the victims of the violent crime or their families may have sufficient grounds for a valid lawsuit. It is important to retain an experienced shooting victim lawyer who can help prove the convenience store owner acted negligently."
