Legal Options Available to Victims Injured in Parking Lot Stabbings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent of crimevictim.Attorney represents victims and their families injured or killed in parking lot stabbings. Mr. Kent has shared his knowledge on the legal options available to these victims.

“Commercial property owners must fulfill their legal duty of keeping their patrons and employees safe from preventable hazards. The first step they must take, then, is providing  adequate security on site. Things like metal detectors, video cameras, and security guards may be deemed as adequate, but the list goes on. If a property owner does not provide this level of security, then they may be liable if a violent crime like a stabbing occurs on the premises”, states Mr. Kent.

“However, inadequate security on its own is not merely enough to bring a lawsuit against the property owner. The violent crime must be reasonably foreseeable for the victim to have a strong case. This means that if the owner of a parking lot has heard reports of crime in the area and chooses not to offer the adequate security to protect their customers, then the owner may be held liable for the victim’s injuries. The victim’s lawyer must prove that the owner acted negligently by not offering adequate security and that the crime itself was reasonably foreseeable”, explains Mr. Kent.

If you or a loved one has experienced something similar to this incident, you should reach out to an experienced crime victim attorney to discuss your legal options.
