Security Failure? Our Legal Take: Woman Shot, Injured Outside Austell Bar
Did negligent security contribute to this Austell parking lot shooting? Read Our Legal Take to find out if the victim may have a legal avenue for justice and claims for compensation
31-year-old Danielle Erwin was reportedly shot and injured outside B3 Bar and Grill in Austell Sunday, October 30. 2016.
According to WSB-TV 2, Ms. Erwin and a friend were “leaving B3 Bar and Grill” when gunfire erupted in the parking lot. Ms. Erwin was apparently struck and transported to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds. Her current condition has not been released.
Our Legal Take
Business patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on premises of the establishment they are visiting. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided in the parking lot and whether this shooting may have been prevented.
What parking lot security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were in place outside the bar to protect patrons at the time of the shooting?
- Crime reports, from Spotcrime.com, reveal a number of recent burglaries and thefts in the surrounding area. Was the parking lot owner or management aware of any prior incidents of violence 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 parking lot owner or management failed to provide adequate security, Ms. Erwin may elect to seek justice and pursue legal claims 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 properties will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed.
