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 unconscionable shooting may have been prevented.

  • How did the gunman gain entry to the complex? What access controls and security measures, such as gated entry, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Miss Harris at the time of the shooting?

By law, property owners in Georgia 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 or management failed to provide adequate security, Shamaria Harris and her family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for her injuries.

The Murray Law Firm has recovered millions of dollars for victims of unsafe properties in Georgia, and recently obtained a $29.25 million dollar verdict in Georgia.
