Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson represents victims and their families involved in violent crimes in civil suits. Below, Bobby has shared various legal options available to victims of stabbings.
Bobby said, “business and property owners are legally obligated to provide some form of security for their customers, guests, and visitors. Adequate security varies; examples are having well-lit outside areas, security cameras, and security guards. If a property owner fails to improve security for customers’ safety after previous incidents, a civil lawsuit may be filed with the help of a legal representative.”
Bobby furthered the victim’s legal options by discussing property owners’ negligence. Bobby continued, “a victim’s attorney must prove any negligence on behalf of a property or business owner for the victim to have a case. For example, it must be proven that a crime was reasonably foreseeable by an owner. A crime could be deemed foreseeable if an owner willingly did not improve security after knowing that crimes committed in the area were elevating. If the court finds the property owner was negligent, then monetary damages may be awarded to the victim or a family member.”
