Security Lapse? Our Legal Take: Woman Injured in Norcross Hotel Shooting
Did negligent security contribute to the shooting of this woman? Read Our Legal Take to find out if the victim may have a legal avenue for justice and a claim for compensation.
A 33-year-old woman was reportedly shot and injured during a hotel room invasion in Norcross Sunday, October 30, 2016.
The Norcross Patch reports, the shooting occurred “at the Motel 6 at 6015 Oakbrook Pkwy. in Norcross at about 11:30 p.m.” The victim was apparently sleeping in her hotel room when two armed assailants knocked at her door. Another occupant of the room opened the door and the gunmen apparently entered and opened fire, striking and injuring the victim.
Police have not yet identified the suspects or a motive.
Our Legal Take
Hotel patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided to those at the apartment complex and whether this unconscionable attack may have been prevented.
- How did the intruders gain entry to the property? What security measures, such as gated-entry, guest screening, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place and working at the time of the shooting?
- Was the hotel aware of any prior criminal activity on or near the property? If so, were additional security precautions implemented by the property owner or management to deter crime?
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 victim may elect to seek justice and pursue a legal claim for her injuries.
Based upon its long, extensive, and successful experience in handling negligent security cases against property owners in the State of Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed.
