Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Gas Station

Attorney contributor Reed Martens is an experienced violent crimes lawyer who represents victims of shootings along with their families in civil lawsuits. During an interview, Reed highlighted the legal options for victims of gas station shootings.

"Gas station owners are legally obligated to maintain a safe environment for those on and around their property. Gas station owners should implement adequate safety measures, including strong lighting on the property, security cameras, and more to ensure the safety of their patrons. If a gas station owner does not have adequate safety measures in place and a violent crime, like a shooting, takes place, the owner could be held liable for negligence."

"If a victim is shot at a gas station, the victim or their family has a legal right to question if the owner did everything possible to prevent the crime from occurring. If adequate safety measures were not in place, the owner might be deemed liable for damages. In addition, if a crime is considered reasonably foreseeable, the property owner could also be held responsible. A foreseeable crime can include if crime rates in the area had increased, yet security measures were not increased on the property. Victims and their families of gas station shootings should employ the services of an experienced violent crimes lawyer to explore all their legal options. In certain cases of negligence, victims may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and might even receive compensation."
