Legal Recourse For Victims of Parking Lot Stabbings

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville of Banville Law represents parking lot stabbing victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Mr. Banville has offered to share his insight on the legal options available to these victims.

“All commercial property owners must fulfill an important legal duty of keeping their patrons and employees safe from preventable dangers. Property owners of places such as restaurants and parking lots must provide adequate security measures to anyone that visits their premises in order to prevent any reasonably foreseeable dangers. A crime may be deemed reasonably foreseeable if a parking lot had a prior history of criminal violence, but no security improvements were made”, explained Mr. Banville.

“If a parking lot owner fails to provide adequate security and a stabbing occurs due to their negligence, then the owner may be held partially liable. However, the victim’s lawyer must also be able to show that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. If the crime is proven to be caused by negligent security and deemed reasonably foreseeable, then victims may have grounds for a lawsuit,” he concluded.

If you or a loved one has experienced a situation similar to this one, you can learn more about your legal options by reviewing your case with a crime victim lawyer.
