Can Parking Lot Owners Be Held Responsible For Violent Crime on Their Properties?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney works closely with victims injured in parking lot shootings in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent has shared his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families.
It is important for victims of criminal violence to understand that all commercial property owners are legally obligated to protect their patrons and employees from any reasonably foreseeable dangers. In order to fulfill this duty, property owners must provide adequate security. This may include hiring security guards, installing metal detectors, or establishing well-lit parking lots. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security and someone is injured on the premises due to their negligence, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against that property owner.
However, that is not all that is necessary to have grounds for a security negligence lawsuit. The crime victim’s lawyer must also prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. For instance, if a shooting occurred in a parking lot with a prior history of criminal violence, but no security improvements were made, then the crime may be deemed reasonably foreseeable. Essentially, if a reasonably foreseeable crime occurs on a property because of inadequate security, then the property owner may be held liable for the crime.
If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a parking lot shooting, you can learn more about your legal options by reaching out to an experienced crime victim attorney like Mr. Kent.
