FORMER CLIENT: I had lawyers calling me, and friends telling me who I should hire…I trusted in The Murray Law Firm and I’m glad I did.

Residents and guests of apartment complexes have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the complex 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:

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property, and were any security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • What security measures were in place to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting? 
  • Was the complex aware of any suspicious persons or suspicious activity on the 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 complex owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its residents and visitors, the family of Jason Grider may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss. 

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 the family of Jason Grider retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

Could this shooting have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the victim?

Local News

Security measures are under scrutiny following a shooting at a Greenwood, South Carolina apartment complex Tuesday evening, February 12, 2019.

According to WSPA.com, “deputies responded to a call about a woman being shot at Wisewood Apartments, which is located off of Florida Avenue, at about 6:30 p.m.”  The news agency indicates that “people were reportedly standing in the parking lot of [the] complex when two unknown men–one wearing a dark hoodie and the other wearing a light hoodie–walked up and tried to rob them.”  According to FoxCarolina.com, “when the suspects realized there was nothing to take, they started to walk away, only for one of the suspects to turn and shoot a single shot.”  That shot hit a woman “in the side of her abdomen” according to the news outlet.

FoxCarolina.com reports “[w]arrants were obtained against [1 suspect] for attempted murder, attempted armed robbery, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.”

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 tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • What security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, visible surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting?
  • How did the suspects gain entry to the 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, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for her 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.
