Legal Rights For Victims Shot on a Train

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan has represented numerous victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. Kevin has provided his insight regarding the rights of victims shot on a train.

"Commercial property owners, including public transit, have a legal duty to keep their patrons and employees safe while on their property. To ensure this safety, owners should offer adequate security measures, which may include hiring security guards, installing metal detectors, and conducting bag searches. If someone suffers an injury, including being shot, while on their property and proper security measures were not provided, the victim and their family could have grounds to pursue a lawsuit."

"In addition to inadequate security, the victim's attorney must be able to prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. If previous crimes had occurred on or around the property, the crime could be seen as foreseeable. If the owner did not improve security measures on the property, they could be found negligent in a civil lawsuit. Victims are advised to seek counsel from an experienced violent crimes attorney to explore their legal options fully."
