Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is an experienced violent crime attorney who represents victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Bobby has provided his knowledge on the legal rights of victims of stabbings.
All commercial property owners are obligated by law to protect any patrons and employees on their property. They can do this by providing adequate security, like installing video surveillance and establishing well-lit parking lots. If adequate security is not provided and someone is injured on-site, then the property owner may be held liable for the victim’s injuries.
Additionally, the crime must be deemed reasonably foreseeable in order for the victim to have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a history of criminal violence and the owner did nothing to improve security measures. Overall, to have a strong case against a property owner, a victim’s lawyer must be able to prove that the owner provided inadequate security and that the crime was reasonably foreseeable.
