Did negligent security contribute to this shooting at an Augusta apartment complex and are justice and compensation available to the victims?

AUGUSTA NEWS

Gunfire erupted at an Augusta, Georgia apartment complex Wednesday afternoon, March 20, 2019, leaving two people injured.  According to WFXG.com, “the shooting happened at around 2:49 p.m. Wednesday on 2nd Ave. near Bolt Dr. in Dogwood Terrace Apartments.”  Arriving officers found two victims, “[o]ne person had been shot in the leg and a juvenile had an injury to the head, possibly from shattered glass broken by a projectile.”  Fox5Atlanta.com reports, “[m]edics rushed both victims to the hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening.” 

The investigation is ongoing according to media outlets.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Apartment residents and guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the apartment complex and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property?
  • How was the suspect able to gain access on to the property?
  • What security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the apartment complex owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victims may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their injuries. 

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victims retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

OUR RESULTS

The Murray Law Firm has an extensive and successful record representing victims of violence and security negligence.  We have obtained over $100 Million in verdicts and settlements for our Clients, including a $29.25 million dollar verdict for a victim of an unsafe property. We offer our legal assistance, if desired.

We represent our Clients on a contingency agreement, which generally means that no fees or payments are owed until and unless we recover.  Anyone seeking further information or legal representation is encouraged to contact us via e-mail (click here) or by telephone at 706.494.2800.
