OUR LEGAL TAKE

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:

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

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 victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their injuries.  

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 victim retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

Did negligent security contribute to the tragic death of Jarvis Lee Jones and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Jones’ family?

LOCAL NEWS

Gunfire erupted at an Augusta, Georgia apartment complex Wednesday, February 27, 2019, leaving one man dead according to a media report.

According to WRDW.com, “the shooting happened at the River Glen apartments on the 200 block of Telfair Street and East Boundary.” The news story reports “31-year-old Jarvis Lee Jones from Augusta was shot one time and was pronounced dead on the scene at 5:15 p.m.”  WRDW.com reports “a man has been arrested after a deadly shooting in Augusta Wednesday night at River Glen Apartments.”

WJBF.com has apparently reported on a shooting in the same apartment complex back in September of 2017.

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 apartment complex and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property?
  • What action was taken to address any prior violent activities on to the property?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Jones at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners 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 failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the Mr. Jones’ family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss. 

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, 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. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that Mr. Jones’ family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
