The investigation is ongoing.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Restaurant and parking lot patrons and employees have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the restaurant 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:

  • What security measures were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?
  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near the the property, and, if so, were any security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • Was the restaurant 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 property owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its employees and visitors, Nasani Raley may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for her 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 Nasani Raley retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect her interests.
