Legal Options Available to Shopping Mall Shooting Victims and Their Families

Attorney contributor and shooting victim lawyer Mike Pfau represents shopping mall shooting victims in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent has shared his knowledge on the legal options open to these victims and their families.

“It is important to understand that all commercial property owners have a legal duty to maintain a safe environment on their properties. Shopping mall owners are responsible for protecting their patrons and employees from any preventable violent crimes. Part of this duty is providing adequate security in order to protect those who visit their property from any reasonably foreseeable dangers”, stated Mr. Kent.

“If a property owner fails to provide adequate security and a reasonably foreseeable shooting occurs due to the negligent security, the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against that property owner. As previously stated, the shooting must be considered reasonably foreseeable for the property owner to be held liable. A shooting may be considered reasonably foreseeable if the property or the surrounding area has had prior incidents of violent crime, yet insufficient security measures were in place”, expressed Mr. Pfau.

If you or someone you love has experienced something similar, you can learn more about your legal options by discussing your case with a crime victim attorney.
