Our Legal Take
Gas station patrons and employees 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 property and whether this shooting may have been prevented.
- Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? What security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime 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. As the victim was apparently working at the time of the shooting, he is almost certainly entitled to substantial workers’ compensation benefits.
Unfortunately, employers and insurance companies are often more concerned with their own financial exposure than providing victims with the long term compensation and medical care they deserve. As such, it is imperative the victim retain an experienced workers’ compensation attorney immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed.
