Legal Recourse for Families and Victims of Stabbings

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson represents victims of violent crimes in private civil cases. During a recent interview, Bobby shared his insight on filing a civil lawsuit for victims of stabbings at skate parks

"Property owners, including parks and recreational facilities, have a legal and moral obligation to provide a safe and secure environment for guests. These security features can consist of on-site guards, surveillance cameras, and proper lighting in working conditions. If a park fails to provide sufficient security, they can be found negligent."

"Whenever someone is hurt or killed in a stabbing, a process should be followed to ensure monetary damages for the victim or their family. A crime victim lawyer will analyze the case to prove that the property owner acted negligently. A property owner, also known as a third party, can be partially responsible for the crime that occurred if they fail to offer preventative security measures. If they were aware of increased crime in the area, they would be responsible for increasing such security measures. Failure to do so can cause a court to deem them liable for damages."
