Legal Options of Victims Shot on University Campus

Attorney contributor Aaron Blank is an experienced violent crimes attorney that has represented numerous shooting victims and their families. Aaron shared some of his knowledge on the rights of victims shot on a university campus during a recent interview. 

"University and colleges have a legal responsibility to uphold the safety of the students and guests on their property. They should provide an ample amount of security in order to help prevent violent crimes from taking place on their campus. Some examples of these preventative security measures can include installing security cameras inside and around the campus and having proper lighting and security monitoring at all hours. If a sufficient level of protective measures are not being implemented and someone is injured on the campus, the victim and their family may have reasons to pursue a civil lawsuit against the school." 

"The university officials could be held liable if the crime is considered reasonably foreseeable. A foreseeable crime could include if previous crimes occurred on the campus or in the general area, yet the university failed to increase the security measures on the campus. If the victim's attorney can prove that the crime took place due to a lack of protection, the university could be held liable as the offense could be deemed reasonably foreseeable. It is highly advisable for the victim and their family to seek out an experienced violent crimes attorney."
