Could this fatal Decatur apartment shooting have been prevented, and are justice and compensation available to the victim’s family?

Security measures are in question after a man was fatally shot during “a fight at the apartments on Thicket Way in Decatur early Tuesday evening,” September 11, 2018, according to FOX 5.

A separate Thicket Way apartment shooting occurred during a violent home invasion in March 2018, per 11 Alive reports.

Was negligent security a factor in the shooting of a Decatur man?  Read Our Legal Take below to find out if the victim’s family may have legal avenues for justice and claims for substantial compensation in Georgia.

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 tragedy may have been prevented.

  • What additional security measures, such as gated entry, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were implemented by the apartment complex owner following media reports of prior criminal activity in the surrounding area?

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 apartment complex owner failed to provide adequate security, the victim’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.

The Murray Law Firm has recovered millions of dollars for victims of unsafe properties in Georgia, and recently obtained a $29.25 million dollar verdict in Georgia.
