Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Restaurant?

Attorney contributor Jesse Forbes represents victims injured in restaurant shootings along with the families of those killed in civil lawsuits. As an experienced shooting victim attorney, Paul recently addressed when victims and their families can sue for shootings at a restaurant

"Restaurant owners are legally responsible for offering an adequate level of security on their property. This might include security cameras and sufficient lighting. It is critical that the property owner implement basic security in order to reduce the risk of preventable crime, such as shootings. However, if a property owner fails to provide protection and a customer or employee is injured, the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the negligent restaurant owner."

"If a shooting on the restaurant's property with inadequate security is found to be reasonably foreseeable, the property owner could be held liable for the crime. A foreseeable crime might occur due to the failure of the property's owner to improve security despite knowing of an increase in crime in the area."

"Shooting victims and the families of fatally shot victims can explore all their legal options with an experienced shooting victim attorney. It is important to know your legal rights following a violent crime such as a restaurant shooting."
