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.

Gas station and convenience store patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the gas station 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 violent incidents near or on the property?
  • What security measures were present to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting?
  • Was there any reports of suspicious individuals 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 gas station owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its visitors, the victims may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their 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 the victims retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

Security Failure? Our Legal Take: Man Injured in Antioch Gas Station Shooting

Did negligent security contribute to this gas station shooting? Read Our Legal Take to find out if the victim may have a legal avenue for justice and a claim for compensation.

Local News

A man was reportedly shot and injured during an attempted robbery at the Kwik Sak gas station in Antioch Monday morning, July 25, 2016.

According to WKRN News 2, the shooting occurred “just after midnight in the parking lot of the Kwik Sak gas station on Murfreesboro Road, near Bell Road. The victim told Metro police two young men shot him in his legs when he refused to give them his backpack.”

The victim was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Police have apparently not yet identified the suspects.

Our Legal Take

Patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on premises of the establishment they are visiting. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the gas station and whether this unconscionable attack may have been prevented.

    What security measures, such as bright lighting, security patrols, and surveillance cameras, were in place to protect patrons at the time of the shooting? 

  • July 2016 crime reports from Spotcrime.com reveal a number of assaults, robberies and a shooting in the surrounding area. Was the gas station owner aware of any prior incidents of violence on or near the property?  If so, were additional security precautions implemented by the property owners or management to deter crime?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all patrons legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the gas station owner or management  failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue a legal claim 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.
