Could the shooting at a Memphis bar have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the victim?

Local News

Gunfire erupted at a Memphis, Tennessee bar early Tuesday morning, March 19, 2019, leaving one man injured.  According to Fox13Memphis.com, “the victim was shot on the 4400 block of South Third Street at Lucille’s Blues and Diner.”  WREG.com is reporting the shooting “happened around 2:30 a.m….one person was taken to a nearby hospital, but is expected to be okay.”

Media outlets report no suspect information has been released.

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 on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near the property?
  • Does the bar have a protocol to check guests for deadly weapons prior to entering the establishment?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, visible surveillance cameras, and security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the bar owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on the premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their injuries.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, 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. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
