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 subject property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.
- What additional security measures, such as surveillance cameras, bright lighting and security patrols, were implemented by the apartment complex owner to deter crime following media reports of prior criminal activity on property?
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 or management failed to provide adequate security, the family of Tamashe’ Diquan Jones may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death.
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.
