Can Restaurant Owners Be Responsible For Violence On Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent at https://crimvictim.Attorney specializes in representing victims of preventable violent crime, including parking lot shootings and stabbings.

“It is the legal duty of commercial property owners to keep their patrons safe from any foreseeable violent crime. Therefore, restaurant and parking lot owners must provide a reasonable standard of security in order to prevent hazardous incidents from occurring”, said Mr. Kent.

“However, some restaurant owners may provide inadequate security for their customers, failing to maintain their legal duty. Generally speaking, if a commercial property has negligent security, then the owner may be held accountable for any criminal violence that happens on their property. For instance, if a restaurant that has a history of criminal violence provides inadequate security, and a shooting or stabbing occurs because of the negligent security, then the owner may be partially liable for the crime that took place”, explained Mr. Kent.
