Did negligent security contribute to this shooting and are justice and compensation available to the victim?

LOCAL NEWS

Gunfire erupted at a Nashville, Tennessee gas station on Wednesday evening, March  13, 2019, leaving one man shot and injured.  According to WSMV.com, “a Lyft/Uber driver was filling up his gas tank just after 7 p.m. Wednesday when an SUV pulled up beside him… the passenger in the SUV approached the victim with a semi-automatic handgun and demanded his keys.” NewsChannel5.com reports, “[t]he victim refused and that’s when the suspect opened the victim’s car door and shot him once in the abdomen.”  The news story indicaters the “driver was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with serious injuries.”

No suspect has been identified according to the media outlets.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Gas station 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 gas station and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near the property?
  • Was any suspicious activity reported prior to the incident?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, monitored surveillance cameras, clear windows, and visible security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim 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 gas station owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims 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.
