Can Restaurant Owners Be Held Liable For Violent Crime on Their Properties?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of www.CrimeVictim.Attorney represents violent crime victims and their families in civil cases. Mr. Kent has offered some of his legal insight on the matter below.
“It is important to understand that property owners legally have to provide adequate security on their premises in order to keep their patrons and employees safe from preventable dangers. Adequate security may include things like video surveillance and sufficient lighting in parking lots. Sometimes property owners do not offer adequate security and as a result of their negligence patrons may be affected by shootings and other violent crimes. If a patrons becomes a victim of violent crime due to inadequate security, then he or she may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner,” explains Mr. Kent.
“However, the victim’s attorney needs to go beyond just showing that inadequate security was in place. The attorney must also prove that the crime that occurred was reasonably foreseeable. For instance, if a restaurant owner was aware that violent crime was on the rise in the area, chose not to improve security measures and someone was injured during a shooting, then the crime may be deemed reasonably foreseeable. Overall the crime victim attorney must prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable and that inadequate security was the cause,” states Mr. Kent.
