Legal Recourse For Victims of Restaurant Shootings

Attorney contributor Reed Martens represents victims of restaurant shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. Mr. Martens has offered to share his knowledge about the legal options available to these victims.

Commercial property owners should prioritize the safety of their patrons and employees. They have a legal duty to prevent any reasonably foreseeable crime from injuring those who visit their property. In order to successful protect their customers, property owners must provide adequate security measures on their premises. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security and a violent crime occurs due to their negligence, then they may be held liable for the crime.

However, that is not all. The violent crime must also be deemed reasonably foreseeable for the victim to be able to file a lawsuit against the property owner. A crime may be considered reasonably foreseeable if the property or the surrounding area has had a prior history of criminal violence, but no security improvements were made. For instance, if a reasonably foreseeable shooting occurs at a restaurant due to inadequate security, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against the restaurant owner.
