Our Legal Take
Nightclub 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 property and whether this shooting may have been prevented.
- What security measures, such as weapons screenings, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were in place in and outside the club at the time of the shooting?
- Were any efforts made to deescalate the situation and safely and separately remove all involved in the initial dispute from the property, prior to an escalation to violence?
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 nightclub or parking lot owners failed to provide adequate security, Dominique Adkins and Arid Simmons may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their 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.
