Lawsuits for Victims Shot at Gas Stations

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan is a gun crimes injury lawyer who regularly represents victims of violent crimes and their families in civil court cases. During a recent discussion, Kevin highlighted when a victim's family can sue a business for a shooting death

"Premises liability laws help to determine can be held liable if a crime takes place on the property of a business, such as a gas station. Gas station owners have a legal responsibility to provide security for both their customers and employees. This could include providing ample lighting, surveillance cameras, and emergency alert buttons. These measures attempt to reduce the risk of violent crime on the property, and by failing to provide them, the business owner could be deemed negligent and held liable in a lawsuit." 

"Shooting victims and their families can hire an experienced gun crimes injury lawyer to help them prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable. If violence was on the rise in the area, they would analyze if the gas station owner was aware and increased their security. If the owner neglected to provide sufficient security, the victim and their family may have reason to file a lawsuit. Many times they will be awarded financial compensation from a civil lawsuit."
