Our Legal Take
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 shooting may have been prevented.
- Were any efforts made by restaurant management to call police or de-escalate the initial altercation prior to an escalation to gun violence?
- What parking lot security measures, such as bright lighting, security patrols and surveillance cameras, were in place at the time of the shooting?
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 business or parking lot owners failed to provide adequate security, the Manuel Martinez may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his 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.
