Could this violent Biloxi restaurant robbery have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the victim?
A man was shot during an apparent robbery “in the parking lot of the Half Shell Oyster House” Saturday night, December 15, 2018, according to WXXV 25.
Police told WXXV 25 “the shooting took place during an armed robbery.” The victim “is expected to be okay despite the gunshot wound to the head.”
Our Legal Take
Restaurant 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 on the property and whether this senseless shooting may have been prevented.
- What security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras and visible security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?
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 restaurant owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim 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.
