Could these Memphis shootings have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the young victims?

Local News

Two Memphis teenagers were shot and critically injured during robberies Friday evening, November 23, 2018.

According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, a 17-year-old was shot during a robbery outside “the April Woods Apartments in the 200 block of Chelsea Avenue.” Moments later, an 18-year-old was shot while walking out of “Danny’s market in the same block.”

Both teenagers were transported to hospitals with injuries, per WREG reports. Their identities and current conditions have not been released.

Our Legal Take

Apartment residents and convenience store patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the properties and whether these shootings may have been prevented.

  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the young victims at the time of the shootings?

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 or convenience store owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the young victims 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 victims retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
