Could this violent Carnesville gas station robbery have been prevented, and are justice and compensation available to the victim?

Security measures are under scrutiny after a Florida truck driver was shot during a robbery at “[a] gas station and travel plaza” Monday morning, September 24, 2018, according to The AJC. The victim had apparently “just refilled his truck with diesel and ‘offered no resistance, nor posed any threats to the armed intruders'” when they opened fire. He was transported to the hospital with “serious” injuries.

Franklin County police told WSB-TV 2, the assailants “demanded money and eventually received it from the store registers and then ran off.”

Was negligent security a factor in this senseless Georgia truck stop shooting? Read Our Legal Take below to find out if the victim may have legal avenues for justice and claims for substantial compensation in Georgia.

Our Legal Take

Gas station truck stop patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the property and whether this senseless shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? What security measures, such as metal detectors, clear windows, monitored surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim 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 gas station owner failed to provide adequate security, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his 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.

Victims of Georgia Convenience Store Violence: Know Your Rights

Convenience store patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises of the establishment they are visiting. By law, Georgia property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. For example, should a store or gas station owner have knowledge of prior crime on or near property, they have a responsibility to implement reasonable security precautions to protect employees and patrons from future crime. Security measures may include: bright lighting, metal detectors, clear windows, a visible security guard or off-duty police officer, visible sight lines, and surveillance cameras. Should a convenience store owner fail in this critical duty, they may be held civilly liable for any assaults, injuries or wrongful deaths which occur as a consequence.
