Can Parking Lot Owners Be Held Responsible For Violent Crime on Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville at Banville Law represents violent crime victims in civil lawsuits. Below Mr. Banville has prepared to share his legal insight on the options available to these victims and their families.

All commercial property owners are required by law to keep their patrons and employees safe from preventable dangers. In order to do so, a property owner must first provide adequate security on the premises. Adequate security includes things such as security guards or video surveillance. A violent crime victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner if it can be proven that the owner did not provide adequate security. Additionally, inadequate security must be the cause of the violent crime.

However, there is another aspect necessary to generate a lawsuit against a property owner. In addition to inadequate security, the victim’s lawyer must prove that the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable. For example, if a stabbing occurs in a parking lot with a previous history of criminal violence, then the crime may be deemed reasonably foreseeable. Overall a property owner may be held liable for a violent crime if the crime was reasonably foreseeable and was caused by inadequate security.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of a parking lot stabbing, you can learn more about your legal options by discussing your case with an experienced crime victim attorney.
