Security Failure? Our Legal Take: Mother Paralyzed in Raleigh Apartment Shooting

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

Local News

Natalia Valle was reportedly paralyzed during a robbery-shooting outside her Pines of Ashton apartment home September 4, 2016.

According to ABC 11, Natalia Valle and her husband, Benancio Aguilar, were headed to their “Pines of Ashton” apartment home “in the 3200 block of Calumet Drive” when they were approached by an armed man. The assailant apparently demanded money and opened fire, striking Ms. Valle before fleeing with her purse.  Ms. Valle was transported to the hospital, “where doctors determined that the gunshot had severed her spine,” ABC 11 reports.

The apartment complex was apparently the subject of two armed robbery investigations in November and December of 2015 as well as a shooting investigation in March 2011, according to ABC11 and WRAL News.

Our Legal Take

Apartment residents and guests have a right to feel safe and secure within the community. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the apartment complex and whether this unconscionable attack may have been prevented.

  • How did the gunman gain entry to the property? What security measures, such as bright lighting, gated-entry, security patrols, and surveillance cameras, were in place to deter crime at the time of the shooting?
  • Was the apartment complex aware of any prior criminal activity on or near the property?  If so, were additional security precautions implemented by the property owner or management to protect residents?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all residents and guests legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the apartment complex owner or management company failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Ms. Valle may seek justice and elect to pursue a legal claim 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.
