OUR LEGAL TAKE

Motel guests and visitors have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the motel is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near the property?
  • Was the motel aware of any improper activity before the incident occurred?
  • What security measures, such as guarded-entry, monitored surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and visible security patrols were in place to deter crime and protect the Mr. Maust and others at the time of the shooting?

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the motel owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its guests and visitors, Timothy Maust’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss.  In addition, any other injured victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their injuries.

The Murray Law Firm has extensive and successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, and suggests that an immediate, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed so as to limit evidence from being altered, damaged or destroyed.  The complexities of pursuing a negligent security case are well understood by the legal team at The Murray Law Firm, and it is imperative that Mr. Maust’s  family and any other victims retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

  • Does the nightclub have a protocol to check guests for deadly weapons prior to entering the establishment?
  • What nightclub 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?

LOCAL NEWS

Gunfire erupted at a Little Rock, Arkansas apartment complex early Sunday morning, June 9, 2019, leaving one young man dead.  According to Fox16.com, “Little Rock police officers responded to a report of a shooting at the Spanish Valley Apartments at 5300 Baseline Road shortly before 2:00 a.m. Sunday.”  Per the report, the victim “has been identified as 27-year-old Jeremy Chambers.” The shooting death has prompted residents to call for enhanced security at the Spanish Valley Apartments.  According to KATV.com, “[r]esidents say security at Spanish Valley Apartments is lacking mainly because of the gates being left open and no guard manning the guard station to facilitate traffic entering the premises.  

THV11.com reported on a homicide in this area in July 2017.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Residents and guests of apartment complexes have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the apartment complex is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property, and, if so, were any security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • How was the suspect able to gain access to the property?
  • What security measures were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?
  • Was the complex aware of any suspicious activity or suspicious people on property prior to the shooting?

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the apartment complex owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its residents and visitors, Jeremy Chambers‘ family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss.
