Legal Recourse for Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor to the Legal Herald, Marc Lenahan, often represents clients involved in violent crimes in private civil litigation. Below, he has shared the various legal options available to victims and their families to obtain compensation.

"Business and property owners are legally obligated to provide some form of security for their customers, guests, and visitors. They are bound to the premises liability laws of the United States, so no matter where you live the law remains, generally, the same. Adequate security varies from having well-lit outside areas to security guards. If a property owner fails to improve security for the safety of customers, a civil lawsuit may be filed with the help of a legal representative.

A civil attorney is responsible for proving any negligence on behalf of a property or business owner. It must be proved that a reasonably foreseeable crime happened, by an owner, who did not willingly improve security after knowing that elevated crimes were committed in the area. If negligence is found by the court then monetary damages may be awarded to the victim of the alleged crime or a family member of the victim.

In the case that a victim passes away from injuries from a crime like, a shooting, then a family member may be allowed to request compensation from the court. The compensation can stem from funeral expenses, medical fees from the county, and any other costs associated with the shooting," Attorney Lenahan empathized.
