Legal Options for Victims Shot in a Restaurant Parking Lot

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan works with victims of violent crimes and their families in civil suits. We asked Kevin to share some insight to help victims determine their legal rights and whether they can sue a property owner for being stabbed.

What are the legal obligations a restaurant owner has to its customers?

“Property and business owners have a legal responsibility to uphold their customers’ safety on their property. Property owners must provide adequate security. For example, security cameras, strong lighting, or security guards. If adequate security is not provided, property owners can be held negligent in a civil lawsuit.”

What are the legal options for victims of violent crimes at a restaurant and their families?

“Victims and their family would be to secure a crime victim attorney’s services to learn more about their rights. If a victim’s attorney can prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable, the property owner can be held liable for negligence. A crime can be considered foreseeable if there is a lack of security, but the property owner is aware of criminal activity in the restaurant or the area.” Kevin concluded by saying, “In such cases of negligence, the victims and their families may have grounds for a claim.”
