Did negligent security contribute to this Ventura motel sexual assault and are justice and compensation available to the survivor?

Local News

Security measures are in question after a woman was reportedly sexually assaulted while sleeping in her room “at the Ventura Beach House Motel on 1220 E. Thompson Blvd.” Friday morning, December 7, 2018, according to KTLA 5.

Police told The Citizens Journal, a man “forced his way into the victim’s motel room and assaulted her while she was sleeping.” A suspect has since been arrested and charged with “forcible rape and burglary.”

 Our Legal Take

Motel 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 motel and whether this unconscionable assault may have been prevented.

  • How did the assailant gain entry to the motel?
  • What security measures, such as guarded-entry, guest screening, fencing, bright lighting, monitored surveillance cameras, dead bolts, and visible security patrols, were in place to protect guests and deter crime at the time of the assault?

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 motel owner or property manager failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the survivor may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for her injuries and suffering.

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.

North Carolina apartment residents have a right to feel safe and secure in their own homes. Yet, while home owners can implement any security precaution they deem necessary to protect themselves and their families, apartment tenants are largely at the mercy of their property owner and management company to deter crime. Security measures may include gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, off-duty police patrols, private security personnel, bright lighting, and background checks for both tenants and employees. Sadly, such precautions are all too often neglected to limit financial exposure. This inaction and greed can have devastating consequences.

According to WRAL, Durham police are searching for robbers who appear to be “targeting apartment complexes with large Hispanic populations.” There have been 13 reported robberies this week “and the suspects in each case displayed a gun before taking wallets, cash and cellphones from victims.”

The robberies raise grave questions about apartment complex security measures and what additional precautions property owners and management companies are taking to protect their tenants during this crime wave.

While security is ultimately the responsibility of the complex owner, Durham police urge apartment residents to take safety precautions:

  • Do not loiter in parking lots.
  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times.
  • Have your keys ready when approaching to enter your apartment or your vehicle.
  • Do not carry large amounts of money or jewelry.
  • Do not walk alone at night.
  • If someone is following you, do not drive directly to your neighborhood. Instead, drive to a well-lit area.
  • When you are walking, avoid strangers or groups of strangers.
  • Park your vehicle in well-lit areas.
  • Do not open your home door to strangers. Call 911 immediately.

Victims of Durham Apartment Assault or Injury: What Are My Legal Options for Justice and Compensation?

By law, North Carolina apartment complex owners have a duty to protect tenants and guests from any foreseeable harm. Should a property owner fail in this critical responsibility, they may be held civilly liable for any injuries, sexual assaults, or wrongful deaths suffered as a consequence. Compensation may be in the tens of millions of dollars. As each case and property is unique, victims of apartment crime should speak with an experienced security negligence firm as soon as possible to ensure all evidence, such as surveillance footage or broken lighting, is preserved and their best interests are protected.

Could the tragic loss of this young San Antonio man have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to Terrence Scott’s family?

Local News

Security measures are in question after a San Antonio sports bar shooting claimed the life of 26-year-old Terrence Lamont Scott and left a woman injured early Saturday morning, November 17, 2018.

According to KENS 5, gunfire erupted inside “Chasers Sports Bar & Lounge, near Blanco and West Avenue around 1 a.m.” Mr. Scott was discovered with fatal injuries at the scene. A female victim was transported to the hospital with injuries. Her identity and current condition have not been released.

A witness reportedly told KSAT 12, he “knew something was going to happen because there was no like, no security whatsoever. They were just letting people going in. I mean the place was packed. Like something was bound to happen.” The chaotic account raises grave questions over security measures at the bar.

Our Legal Take

Bar and nightclub patrons 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.

  • Have there been prior incidents of criminal activity on or near property?
  • How did a gun gain entry to the property? What security measures, such as weapons screenings, metal detectors, bag checks, surveillance cameras, and visible security personnel were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Scott at the time of the shooting?

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 sports bar owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Terrence Scott’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss. Additionally, the surviving victim of this shooting may 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’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
