Legal Options For Victims Shot at a Mall

Attorney contributor Phil Edwards is an experienced criminal violence attorney that has represented victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. During an interview, he provided his insight regarding legal options for victims of shootings on commercial property, such as a mall.

"Commercial property owners, including mall owners, have a legal responsibility to provide security to those on their property, especially as preventatives to violent crimes. To ensure their patron's safety, mall owners should create a well-lit environment, install surveillance cameras throughout the property in addition to hiring security guards. If ample security is lacking on the mall's property and someone suffers an injury, the victim may have reason to pursue a lawsuit against the mall owner."

"The mall owner can be held liable if the crime is considered foreseeable or if the property owner is found negligent. A crime is foreseeable if it is found to have been preventable, such as if previous violent crimes occurred on their property, but the mall owner made no improvements to security. If an attorney can prove that a crime occurred solely because of inadequate security, therefore reasonably foreseeable, then the mall owner could be found liable and even compensation to the victim."
