Can Restaurant Owners Be Held Liable for Violent Crime on Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea represents victims of violent crime in civil cases. Below Mr. Kent has shared his knowledge about the legal options available to restaurant shooting victims and their families.

“Legally, commercial property owners are obligated to ensure the safety of all patrons and employees. Property owners must be able to protect their customers from preventable dangers by offering adequate security on or around the premises. Therefore, if a restaurant owner failed to provide adequate security measures on-site, and someone is injured in a shooting, then he or she may be held liable for the crime”, stated Mr. Kent.

“Additionally, the victim’s attorney must also be able to prove that the violent crime committed was reasonably foreseeable. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a prior history of violent crime, yet no security improvements were put in place. Violent crime victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner if he or she was injured by a reasonably foreseeable crime. Ultimately, a reasonably foreseeable violent crime must have been caused by inadequate security in order for a property owner to be considered liable”, Mr. Kent explained.

If you or someone you loved has been injured or killed in a restaurant shooting, you can contact an experienced gun crimes injury lawyer to learn more about the legal options available to you.
