Legal Options Available To Parking Lot Stabbing Victims

Attorney contributor Brian Kent of crimevictim.attorney works closely with victims of violent crimes in civil cases and below we have asked him to share his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families.

“It is important to understand that all commercial property owners are bound by law to ensure the safety of all of their customers and employees. In order to protect their patrons from preventable dangers on their properties, these owners must provide adequate security. When a parking lot owner, for example, does not provide adequate security, he or she may become liable for a violent crime if it injures someone on or near their property,” Kent explains.

“A victim’s attorney has to additionally prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. For instance, if the owner of a restaurant receives reports that stabbings are on the rise in the area and does not to take proper precaution, then the crime may be deemed reasonbably foreseeable. Ultimately, however, inadequate security and a reasonably foreseeable crime must be shown together for the property owner to be considered liable for a violent crime,” concludes Kent.

If you or someone close to you has been directly impacted by a parking lot stabbing, you can contact an experienced attorney to discuss your case.
