Was negligent security a factor in this Decatur motel shooting? Read Our Legal Take below to find out if the victims may have legal avenues for justice and claims for substantial compensation in Georgia.

Our Legal Take

Motel 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 motel and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • What security measures, such as guarded entry, bright lighting, monitored surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victims 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 motel owner failed to provide adequate security, the victims may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their injuries.

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.
