Can I Sue For Being Shot at Work?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent provides legal aid to victims of violent crime in New Jersey. As an experienced shooting victim lawyer, he shared some useful information for victims of gunshot wounds, including when they can sue.  

"Commercial property owners have a legal duty to provide reasonable safety for both their customers and employees. They should ensure their security measures are detailed and effective. Surveillance cameras, attentive employees, and adequate lighting can all help reduce the risk of preventable dangers. If the property owner failed to provide sufficient security and an employee is shot while working, the owner could be held liable in a civil lawsuit."

"As crime in the area increases, the property owners must also increase their security on their property. An experienced shooting victim lawyer can help victims determine their best legal actions and if they are eligible for financial compensation."
