Legal Recourse for Victims of Shootings in Parking Lots

Marc Lenahan, an attorney contributor, possesses extensive experience representing victims of violent crimes. He has offered to share his expertise on this subject for any victims that may find themselves in this situation:

"When a crime is committed on a property, the owner may be held liable for the safety of all customers and guests. Indeed, the owner has a duty to provide some form of security that may include well-lit parking lots, security cameras, guards or other safety mesures. However, if the owner fails to provide a safe place of business, a civil suit may be filed to hold them accountable.

A civil law attorney will need to prove that the owner was not successful in their implicit requirement to provide safe premises to the guests of the business. For the attorney, this means conducting research to find circumstances where the owner may have been negligent and which resulted in the suffering felt by a victim and their loved ones. For instance, a reasonably foreseeable act of negligence includes incidents where the property owner knew of shootings in the neighborhoods and area, and yet did not improve their security.

When a shooting incident occurs, medical bills for the victim can accumulate very quickly. Unfortunately, the family of the victim will usually have to pay for the debt; meanwhile, the victim may need extensive specialized care for months or even years. A civil suit can ensure compensation for lost wages, loss of employment, and any medical expense related to the injuries sustained in the shooting," concluded Lenahan.
