NightClub-300x200Defying a culture that has all too often silenced victims of sexual harassment, the #MeToo movement has ushered in a heightened social awareness of sexual misconduct in the workplace and beyond. Predators once protected by corporate profit margins and a social taboo of openly discussing harassment, sexual assault, and rape, are finally being held accountable and a fresh intolerance for such behavior is trickling into other social corners.

A January 2018 Noisey investigation explores How Nightclubs Are Taking a Stand Against Sexual Harassment amid the #MeToo movement:

Noisey interviewed a broad range of partygoers and nightlife professionals in New York City, and their words paint a troubling picture: that of one of the city’s best-known industries is struggling to adequately confront harmful behavior in the spaces where people go to enjoy themselves….

Several industry sources noted that clubs generally have internal policies around how to control customers’ behavior and deal with violent incidents—for example, when to stop serving someone alcohol, or when to call the police and how to deal with them when they arrive. Nevertheless, it’s rare for venues to have detailed policies for dealing with harassment specifically, and still less common for them to make those policies public. This lack of explicit protocol is surprising given how vulnerable nightlife venues can be to this kind of behavior….

There are signs of change, however. As Noisey’s reporting revealed, some New York clubs are beginning to tackle harassment more transparently, engaging actively with their customers and formulating explicit policies on how to stamp out such behavior.

Can Victims of Nightclub Sexual Assault Seek Justice and Compensation? 

Bar and nightclub patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises of the establishment they are visiting. By law, property owners are required to protect all patrons legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should a nightclub owner fail in this critical responsibility, they may be held civilly liable for any injuries or wrongful deaths which occur as a consequence.

Could the senseless shooting of this young Forestville man have been prevented?

Gunfire erupted in a Forestville parking lot Wednesday, May 16, 2018, claiming the life of 19-year-old TyJuan Lawrence.

Prince George County Police told media “officers responded to the 3200 block of Walters Lane,” around 11 a.m., where “they discovered Lawrence in a parking lot suffering from gunshot wounds.” Tragically, he succumbed to fatal injuries. Police have since made an arrest in connection with the shooting, per Washington Post reports.

There is an apparent history of criminal activity in the area. Following coverage of a July 2016 shooting at a nearby apartment complex, The Sentinel reported there had been “a number of shootings and homicides along Waters Lane over the years.” Sadly, it appears the violence continues.

Did negligent security contribute to this Forestville parking lot shooting? We represent individuals and families who have suffered a tragic loss or injury as a consequence of negligent property security. Read Our Legal Take below to find out if the Mr. Lawrence’s family may have a legal avenue for justice and claims for substantial compensation in Maryland, or call now for a free consultation with our legal team: 888.842.1616.

Our Legal Take

Parking lot 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.

  • What additional security measures, such as guarded entry, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were implemented by the property owner following media reports of prior criminal activity in the surrounding area? 

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 parking lot owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on the premises, the family of TyJuan Lawrence may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death.

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’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Could the senseless loss of this young mother have been prevented?

CampusEmergencyPhone-225x300College campuses often create a false sense of security for the students who live there. Potentially thousands of students on campus make it nearly impossible for residents to control access to their dormitories or identify an intruder. Additionally, sprawling grounds, buildings and landscaping can provide hiding places for would-be predators.

RAINN urges students to take the following precautions on campus:

Know your resources. Who should you contact if you or a friend needs help? Where should you go? Locate resources such as the campus health center, campus police station, and a local sexual assault service provider. Notice where emergency phones are located on campus, and program the campus security number into your cell phone for easy access.

Stay alert. When you’re moving around on campus or in the surrounding neighborhood, be aware of your surroundings. Consider inviting a friend to join you or asking campus security for an escort. If you’re alone, only use headphones in one ear to stay aware of your surroundings.

Be careful about posting your location. Many social media sites, like Facebook and Foursquare, use geolocation to publicly share your location. Consider disabling this function and reviewing other social media settings.

Make others earn your trust. A college environment can foster a false sense of security. They may feel like fast friends, but give people time earn your trust before relying on them.

Think about Plan B. Spend some time thinking about back-up plans for potentially sticky situations. If your phone dies, do you have a few numbers memorized to get help? Do you have emergency cash in case you can’t use a credit card? Do you have the address to your dorm or college memorized? If you drive, is there a spare key hidden, gas in your car, and a set of jumper cables?

Be secure. Lock your door and windows when you’re asleep and when you leave the room. If people constantly prop open the main door to the dorm or apartment, tell security or a trusted authority figure.

Victims of College Campus Sexual Assault: Know Your Rights

Students have a right to feel safe and secure in their dormitories and on their college campuses. By law, colleges are required to protect all students and guests legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. For example, should college administration have knowledge of prior violence on or near property, they have a responsibility to implement additional security precautions to protect students and deter furture crime. Should they fail in this critical responsibility, they may be held civilly liable for any injuries, sexual assaults, or wrongful deaths which occur as a consequence.
