Our Legal Take
Hotel 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 property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.
- Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
- What security measures, such as guarded entry, guest screening, bright lighting, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Bryant 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 hotel owner or management failed to provide adequate security, the family of Dennis Bryant may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death.
