Did negligent security contribute to the shooting at a Breaux Bridge apartment complex and are justice and compensation available to the victim?

LOCAL NEWS

Gunfire erupted at a Breaux Bridge, Louisiana apartment complex Sunday morning, April 14, 2019, leaving one teen girl injured.  According to TheAdvocate.com, the teenage girl was shot “Sunday in the parking lot of Breaux Bridge Apartments at 220 Margaret St.”  The news story reports that the victim “received treatment at St. Martin Hospital and is in stable condition.” KATC.com is reporting “the 16-year-old victim was with four other teenage girls when she was shot,”  no others were injured.  A suspect was arrested and charged according to the media outlets.

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 at the apartment complex and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • What security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?
  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property?
  • How was the suspect able to gain access on 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 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.
