Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Convenience Store

Attorney contributor Ryan Frazier is an experienced violent crime lawyer who has represented numerous shootings in civil lawsuits. During an interview, Ryan highlighted legal options for victims of convenience store shootings.

"Convenience store owners have a legal obligation to upkeep a safe environment for those in and around the property. In order to maintain safety, store owners should implement adequate safety measures, which can include strong lighting and surveillance cameras. Suppose a convenience store owner does not maintain an adequate level of safety and a violent crime occurs, such as a shooting. In that case, the owner may be held liable for negligent security."

"If a victim is shot at a convenience store, they have legal grounds to question if the store owner did everything possible to prevent the crime from happening. If the owners have failed to exercise reasonable care, the owner could be considered liable. Additionally, if a crime is found to be reasonably foreseeable, the property owner could be held liable. One example of a foreseeable crime would include if crime rates in the area increased, but security measures on the property did not. Victims of convenience store shootings and their families should explore the services of an experienced violent crime lawyer to learn all their legal options. In cases of negligence, they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit which could include financial compensation."
