Our Legal Take
Nightclub patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the club and whether this shooting may have been prevented.
- What security measures, such as weapons screenings, security patrols, bright lighting, and surveillance cameras, were in place to deter crime at the time of the shooting?
- Were any additional security precautions implemented by the property owner or management to protect patrons following reports of prior criminal activity?
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 nightclub 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.
