Could the senseless loss of this young man have been prevented, and are justice and compensation available to his family?

Gunfire erupted outside the Parkton Apartments in Mableton Wednesday morning, June 20, 2018, claiming the life of 20-year-old Justin D. Perryman, per AJC reports.

According to the Marietta Daily Journal, responding officers discovered Mr. Perryman “at the Parkton Apartments located at 6862 Mableton Parkway,” shortly after 2:30 a.m. Tragically, the young man succumbed to fatal injuries at the scene.

Was negligent security a factor in this senseless Mableton apartment shooting and could this tragedy have been prevented?  Read Our Legal Take below to find out if Mr. Perryman’s family may have legal avenues for justice and claims for substantial compensation in Georgia.

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 subject 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 gated entry, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Perryman 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, the family of Justin Perryman may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death.

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.

Cobb County Police are reportedly investigating a recent string of early morning break-ins at several gas stations along South Cobb Drive. A FOX 5 investigation questions what gas station owners are doing to protect patrons and staff during this alarming crime spree:

“With thieves preying on business owners and customers at gas stations across the metro area, many are left wondering what more can be done to increase security.

Gas stations are often targets for criminal activity due to (frequently) late hours of operation, accessibility to major roadways, and vulnerable patrons. The National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) warns, “the unique setting allows thieves to catch their victims by complete surprise….But these thefts can be easily prevented if the appropriate precautions are taken.”

Given these risks, gas station owners and managers must take steps to protect patrons and deter any foreseeable crime.

Gas Station Owners and Managers: Safety Checklist

  • Has there been prior criminal activity on or near property? If so, what additional security measures could be implemented to reduce such crime on property in the future?
  • Are all security features, such as lighting, fencing and surveillance cameras, in place and working?
  • Is the gas station properly staffed with enough employees to both assist patrons and monitor the property?
  • Is a security guard or off-duty police officer visibly stationed on the premises?
  • Does the gas station provide bright lighting at all service areas?
  • Are the gas pumps, air pressure tanks, and other service areas clearly visible to gas station employees?
  • Do employees utilize a bulletproof pass-through window for late-night cash transactions?

Victims of Gas Station Violence: Know Your Rights

Gas station 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 patrons legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm.
