Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson, an experienced violent crime attorney, has represented numerous victims of stabbings. Below, Bobby shares his thoughts about the legal options of victims stabbed in a parking lot and their families.
"Commercial property owners have a legal obligation to maintain the safety of patrons and employees on their premises. To be successful, property owners must provide adequate security measures. Security measures include, but are not limited to, video surveillance and security personnel. If property owners fail to provide adequate security on their premises and someone is the victim of a violent crime, then the owner may be liable for the victim's injuries."
"Victims should secure the services of an experienced violent crime attorney to explore all options. If a victim's lawyer can prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable, the victim may have grounds for a civil lawsuit. An example of a foreseeable crime is if crime rates in the area were increasing, but security measures were not increased. In cases of foreseeable crimes, victims and their families may receive compensation for damages."
