Could this senseless loss of life have been prevented, and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Smith’s family?
Security measures are in question after 20-year-old Traveon Quandarius Smith was fatally shot “outside…[a] gas station on 301 North Stone Mountain Road” in Lithonia Wednesday, November 21, 2018, according to The AJC.
Police told FOX 5, Mr. Smith was discovered with multiple gunshot wounds “in the gas station’s parking lot.” Tragically, he succumbed to fatal injuries.

Our Legal Take
Gas station 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 gas station and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.
- Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
- What security measures, such as bright lighting, monitored surveillance cameras, clear windows, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Smith 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 or management failed to provide adequate security, the family of Traveon Quandarius Smith may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.
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.
