Our Legal Take
Bar and restaurant 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 senseless shooting may have been prevented.
What security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were in place and working at the time of the shooting?
- Recent crime reports, from Spotcrime.com, reveal a number of assaults in the area. Were any additional security precautions implemented by the bar owner or management to deter crime, following reported local criminal activity?
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 bar owner or management failed to provide adequate security, the victims may 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.
