Residents and guests of apartment complexes have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the apartment complex is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • What security measures were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?
  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property, and were any security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • Was the complex aware of any suspicious persons or suspicious activity on the property prior to the shootings? 

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the apartment complex owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its residents and visitors, the family of LaMarion Wright may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss.  

The Murray Law Firm has extensive and successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, and suggests that an immediate, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed so as to limit evidence from being altered, damaged or destroyed.  The complexities of pursuing a negligent security case are well understood by the legal team at The Murray Law Firm, and it is imperative that the family of LaMarion Wright retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

As the details of this accident continue to develop, the family of Bailey Smith may elect to file civil claims seeking compensation for their loss. In addition, any injured victims may elect to file civil claims seeking compensation.  Due to multiple injuries and potentially limited insurance proceeds, the victims and their families are encouraged to retain representation without delay. The Murray Law Firm has had extensive and successful experience representing victims of motor vehicle claims in Georgia, and the legal team at the firm suggests that the family of Bailey Smith and any injured victims should retain a law firm to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation and the preservation of any and all evidence. Photographs of the roadways and vehicles involved and a review of surveillance footage from nearby businesses or properties, if any exists, will need to be performed immediately before this evidence is damaged or destroyed.
