Could this Zionsville apartment shooting have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to Isaac Bermudez?

Local News

Police have made an arrest in the Quail Run Apartment shooting which left 33-year-old Isaac Bermudez injured in late October, per Times Sentinel reports. The suspect, who remained at large until December 6, is facing multiple charges, including “robbery resulting in serious bodily injury.”

The complex was the location of a fatal shooting investigation in May 2017, per CBS 4 reports. The incidents raise grave questions over security measures at the complex.

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 on the property and whether this senseless shooting may have been prevented.

  • What additional security measures, such as gated-entry, bright lighting, fencing, surveillance cameras, tenant background checks, and security patrols, were implemented by the apartment complex owner and management following media reports of prior criminal activity on property?

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 apartment complex owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Mr. Bermudez may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his 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.

(WCCB Charlotte)

A recent string of armed robberies have raised grave questions over security measures at Charlotte-area apartment complexes and check cashing locations.

According to WCCB Charlotte, CMPD is asking apartment residents and check cashing business patrons “to be aware after arrest[ing] a group for robbing at least nine people in Charlotte.” Investigators told media, “[e]ight crime scenes piled up and the suspects were getting more violent before police caught up.” The assailants were finally caught after robbing a grandmother at knife point outside her apartment on November 16th.

Although the crime spree appears to be over, the incidents should serve as a catalyst for local apartment complex and cash checking store owners to implement improved security measures to deter future crime.

Apartment complex security measures may include gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, bright lighting, security patrols, training from local law enforcement, and background checks for both tenants and employees.

Check cashing businesses are also responsible for providing a safe space for patrons, both inside the store and outside in the business parking lot. Security measures may include bright lighting, clear sight lines, monitored surveillance cameras, parking lot security escorts, and off-duty police patrols.

North Carolina Victims of Apartment or Business Parking Lot Assault: What Are My Legal Options for Justice and Compensation?

North Carolina apartment residents and check cashing business patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises of the establishment they are visiting. By law, North Carolina property owners have a duty to protect all guests legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should a property owner fail in this critical responsibility, they may be held civilly liable for any injuries, sexual assaults, or wrongful deaths suffered as a consequence. Compensation may be in the tens of millions of dollars. As each case and property is unique, victims of violent crime should speak with an experienced security negligence firm as soon as possible to ensure all evidence, such as surveillance footage or broken lighting, is preserved and their best interests are protected.
