Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Gas Station

Attorney contributor Reed Martens is an experienced violent crime attorney and represents victims of shootings in civil lawsuits. In an interview, Reed highlighted legal options for victims wounded in gas station shootings.

"Gas station owners have a legal duty to upkeep a safe environment for those on and around their property. To ensure safety, gas stations should implement adequate safety measures such as strong lighting, cameras, and more. If a gas station does not have adequate safety measures in place at the time of a violent crime, the owner may be deemed liable for negligence."

"When a victim is shot at a gas station, they should question if the station did everything possible to prevent the abuse from occurring. If not, the owner may be deemed liable. In addition, if a crime is deemed reasonably foreseeable, the property owner could be deemed liable. An example of a foreseeable crime is if crime rates in the area increased, but security measures did not. Victims of gas station shootings and their families should secure the services of an experienced violent crime attorney to learn all their legal options. In cases of negligence, victims may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation."
