Security Failure? Niherson Gustave Killed in Parking Lot Shooting, Delray Beach

Niherson Gustave Shot in Delray Beach Parking Lot

Local News

23-year-old Niherson Gustave was reportedly shot in the parking lot of Excell Restaurant & Bar in Delray Beach Thursday morning, December 29, 2016.

According to The Palm Beach Post, Mr. Gustave “was shot outside of the Excell nightclub at 1041 South Congress Ave. after 2 a.m.” The parking lot shooting apparently stemmed from an argument between two groups inside the club and escalated into gunfire after Mr. Gustave and several others were “ejected” from the nightclub.

Our Legal Take

Nightclub and parking lot patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided in the nightclub parking lot and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • What parking lot security measures, such as bright lighting, security patrols and surveillance cameras, were in place to deter crime at the time of the shooting?
  • Were any efforts made by the bar owner or management to safely and separately remove all those involved in the initial altercation from the property, prior to the escalation to violence? Were police called at the start of the initial dispute?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all patrons legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the owner or management of the parking lot failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Mr. Gustave may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death.

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’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Choosing the Right Attorney

Selecting the right attorney for you or your family is highly important. You must feel confident that the attorney you hire has a complete understanding of the law applicable to your particular case, and has successful experience in handling such cases.

Important: Do not hire a lawyer who has violated the Rules of Professional Conduct!!!

You should not hire an attorney who calls you or visits you unsolicited, or anyone that contacts you directly to offer legal services. This activity is strictly prohibited by Rule 7.3 of the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct, which states as follows:

ABA Center for Professional ResponsibilityA LAWYER “SHALL NOT” CONTACT A PROSPECTIVE CLIENT THROUGH A “LIVE TELEPHONE” OR AN “IN-PERSON” VISIT.

– RULE 7.3, ABA MODEL RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT.

If an attorney, or someone acting on behalf of an attorney, contacts you in this manner, that attorney is in violation of this Rule. This unethical and unprofessional activity on the part of the lawyer is good sign that you should stay away. It is imperative that you are represented by an attorney who is capable of advocating for you within the confines of the law, and an attorney who fails to abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct is probably not the best fit. In fact, any such attorney should be immediately reported to the local State Bar Association. If you have been contacted in such an unsolicited manner, contact us and we’ll assist you in filing a report.

Contingency Fees Disclaimer: “Contingent attorneys’ fees refers only to those fees charged by attorneys for their legal services. Such fees are not permitted in all types of cases. Court costs and other additional expenses of legal action usually must be paid by the client.
