Legal Options Open to Victims of Restaurant Shootings

Attorney contributor Reed Martens works with criminal violence victims against negligent parties, and those wondering if they can sue for being shot. Here are a few of his thoughts on the legal options a victim of criminal violence at a bar or restaurant may hold.

According to the law, commercial property owners have to protect their patrons and employees. To do this, they must provide adequate security. Owners of restaurants and bars then should have video surveillance or something else on the premises to help deter violent crime. If someone is injured on site and adequate security measures were not taken, the victim of the violent crime may have a lawsuit against the property owner.

Yet, the victim must also be able to show that the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable. For instance, if the owner of a restaurant is aware that shootings are prevalent nearby and he still does not take proper security measures, he or she may be held liable for the injuries sustained by the victim. Overall, a violent crime must be reasonably foreseeable and adequate security measures must have been avoided in order for a victim to bring a lawsuit.

If you or someone close to you has been affected by a restaurant shooting, it is important that you speak with an attorney that specializes in victims of violent crimes to consider all legal options.
