Legal Analysis For Victims of Restaurant Shootings

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents violent crime victims in civil lawsuits. Mr. Banville has shared with us his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families.

Mr. Banville explains, “As a commercial property owner, you have a legal duty to keep your patrons and employees safe from any reasonably foreseeable crime. To do this property owners must provide their premises with adequate security. This may include installing video cameras, establishing well-lit parking lots, and hiring security guards. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security, and a shooting occurs due to their negligence, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit.”

He continued: “In addition, the crime must be considered reasonably foreseeable in order for the property owner to be considered liable. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that happens on a property that had a prior history of violence, yet no security improvements were put in place. Therefore, if a victim’s lawyer can prove that the crime which injured their client was reasonably foreseeable and only occurred due to inadequate security, then the property owner may be found liable.”

If you or someone you loved has fallen victim to a restaurant shooting, then you should contact a professional gun crimes injury lawyer to discuss the legal options available to you and your family.
