Legal Recourse For Victims Injured in Parking Lot Shootings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent of www.crimevictim.Attorney represents violent crime victims in civil lawsuits. Below he has offered to share his insight on the legal options available to parking lot shooting victims and their families.

Business and other property owners are required by law to help maintain the safety of all employees and customers on the premises. In order to successfully do this, they must offer adequate security on site, which may include components like video surveillance, metal detectors, and parking lot lighting at night. If property owner does not provide adequate security and a shooting occurs due to their negligence, then the victim may be able to bring a lawsuit against the owner.

Nonetheless, the victim’s attorney must also be able to show that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. For example, if a parking lot owner receives reports that crime is increasing in the area and does not to take necessary precaution, he or she may be held liable for any violent crime that occurs on site. Overall, inadequate security and a reasonably foreseeable crime must be proven together for a violent crime victim to have a valid law suit.

If you or someone you know has been injured or killed in a parking lot shooting, you should reach out to an experienced attorney to discuss all relevant legal options on the matter.
