On Wednesday, January 18, 2022, 30-year-old Terika Clay got into an argument with an employee at the fast-food restaurant drive-thru. The argument was reported to be over a discount on fries.

Can I Sue For Being Shot at Work?

Attorney contributor Ryan Frazier represents victims of gun violence and their families in civil lawsuits. Recently we asked Ryan to share some information as an experienced shooting victim lawyer regarding the legal rights of victims shot while working at restaurants.

"Restaurant owners, including fast-food restaurants, are legally responsible for the wellbeing of their staff and customers. Restaurant owners must provide sufficient security to ensure their property is reasonably safe. This could include ample lighting and security cameras throughout the property. However, if a restaurant owner fails to offer a security plan to reduce the risk of preventable violence, they could be held accountable for the resulting damages."

"The victim's legal representation will try to prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable in order for a victim to have grounds to pursue a lawsuit. If the property failed to make improvements to its security despite knowing of an increase in violence in the area, the crime could be deemed foreseeable. It is important for victims to seek the advice of an experienced shooting victim lawyer when filing a lawsuit against a negligent property owner."
