Can I Sue For Being Shot At A Restaurant?

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau 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 shootings.

Every commercial property owner is legally obligated to maintain the safety of their patrons and employees. In order to do this, property owners must provide adequate security on their premises. This may include video surveillance and security personnel. If someone is injured in a shooting while inadequate security was in place, the property owner may be held liable for the victim’s injuries.

In addition to inadequate security, the crime must be considered reasonably foreseeable for a victim to have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that happens on a property with a previous history of violent crime and the owner did nothing to improve security measures.
