Can I Sue If I Was Shot Inside a Mall?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced gun violence crime attorney who guides victims and their families in legal lawsuits. During a recent discussion, Brian gave some valuable information concerning victims shot inside a mall, including when a mall can be held liable.

"Mall owners have a legal obligation to ensure a reasonable level of protection for those who visit their premises. They should establish a secure safety strategy to reduce the risk of preventable crime, such as shootings. Surveillance cameras, well-lit parking lots, and patrolling security officers are just a few ways mall owners can reduce these dangers. When a mall owner neglects to provide adequate security, a court may hold the owner liable."

"It is necessary to prove the mall owner was negligent. To do so, a victim may need the help of an experienced violent crime attorney. An owner could be liable for damages if the crime was reasonably foreseeable. If there was a history of violent crimes in the area or on the mall property, but the mall owner had failed to increase security, the incident could be considered foreseeable. In many cases of negligent security, the victim and their family may be entitled to compensation."
