Liability In Boyle Heights Warehouse Party Shootings

The United States has one of the highest instances of gun deaths in the developed world. According to the Centers for Disease Control, in 2020 alone 45,222 people died from gun related injuries. Around 43% of these fatalities were murders. Gun violence in Los Angeles in particular is at a 15-year high. Gun violence can occur in a variety of settings.

  • Many gun crimes occur over gang-related turf disputes.
  • A large portion of robberies involve the use of a firearm.
  • Small disputes can quickly escalate between people, especially when alcohol is present.

Depending on the facts of any case, there could be numerous sources of liability for a Los Angeles party shooting. The owner of a premises could potentially be held liable. According to California Code of Civil Procedure 1714, property owners have a legal obligation to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. This includes taking steps to prevent guests from criminal activity such as assaults with firearms. The level of security that a property owner may need will depend on a variety of factors.

  • The history of criminal activity in a particular city.
  • The history of criminal activity on a particular property.
  • The foreseeability of criminal activity by third parties at a property.

The company or person that hosted a party could also be liable for gun violence. They must also undertake safety measures to prevent shootings. A negligent security claim could arise in a number of different settings. There could be a lack of security guards at a party. Security personnel could be improperly trained. A venue may lack adequate emergency exits. There are a number of steps that should be taken after any Los Angeles warehouse party shooting.

  • Photos of the crime scene should be taken.
  • Eye witnesses should be interviewed.
  • Medical records should be preserved.
  • Surveillance footage should be sought.
  • Security measures should be documented.

The family of any victim that died in a California party shooting may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. Sadly, though, property owners and event organizers will often fight hard to deny liability for any shooting. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
