Can Restaurant Owners Be Liable For Violent Crime on Their Properties?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent at CrimeVictim.Attorney represents victims of restaurant shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent has provided his insight on the legal options available to these victims.
“Every commercial property owner must fulfill their legal duty of keeping their patrons and employees safe from the threat of preventable crime. In order to do so, owners of places like restaurants and bars must provide adequate security on their properties. Examples of adequate security include hiring security guards, installing video surveillance, and establishing well-lit parking lots”, explained Mr. Kent.
He continued: “If a restaurant owner fails to provide adequate security and an incident such as a shooting occurs due to their negligence, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit. In addition, it must be proven that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. For example, if that restaurant had a prior history of violent crime and no security improvements were made, then the shooting may be deemed reasonably foreseeable. Each case is unique but generally speaking, if a reasonably foreseeable shooting occurs at a restaurant due to negligent security, then the victims may have a lawsuit against the property owner.”
