Could the tragic loss of this young man have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Bolden’s family?

Local News

Security measures are under scrutiny after 18-year-old Darian Bolden was shot and killed “at the Peninsula Apartments in the 4800 block of West Fuqua Street” Tuesday night, October 23, 2018, according to The Houston Chronicle.

Witnesses told ABC 13 they heard “more than 12 shots fired” during “an exchange of gunfire between different people.” Responding officers discovered the teenage victim suffering from gunshot wounds in the parking lot. Mr. Bolden was transported to Texas Children’s Hospital, where he tragically succumbed to fatal injuries.

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 on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? What security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Darian Bolden 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 property owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Darian Bolden’s family 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 shooting of a pregnant Memphis woman have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to Ms. Jackson and her newborn son?

Local News

Three weeks after giving birth to a healthy son, Memphis mother Alexes Jackson speaks out on the violent apartment home invasion she survived while pregnant.

According to FOX 13, an assailant broke into Ms. Jackson’s home “at the Legacy at the Parkway” apartment complex, “took her cellphone, shot her, and left in a white Mercedes vehicle.”

Ms. Jackson told police she “started knocking on doors and screaming for help, but nobody answered,” per FOX 13 reports. “She ran a mile to a friend’s apartment in the 3100 block of Ridgeway, which is where she called 911.”

The harrowing ordeal raises grave questions over security measures at the complex.

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 on the property and whether this unconscionable shooting may have been prevented.

  • Where was apartment security and management as the pregnant victim ran through the complex screaming for help? 

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, Alexes Jackson may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for her injuries and any injuries suffered by her infant son.

Escalators-258x300Gunfire erupted in a crowded Springfield mall parking lot Saturday afternoon, October 20, 2018, leaving families terrified. Police told ABC 6, “it all started when two groups got into a fight inside the mall. When the fight moved outside, someone opened fire….Moments after the gunfire…children in their Halloween costumes quickly made their way through the mall with their parents; all had their hands up at the order of police.” The horrific incident raises grave questions over mall security around the country.

Shopping mall patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on premises, whether shopping or walking to their car. A Time Magazine investigation urges shopping mall owners to reduce crime by making security proactive, rather than reactive. Implementing mall parking lots and garages with choke points, license plate readers, surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and security guards may help to reduce crime outside the mall. Inside, overt security guards help to deter crime, while plain-clothes security teams and surveillance cameras monitor suspicious patron behavior.

Shopping Mall Patron Rights

Shopping mall owners have a responsibility to protect patrons legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should they fail in this duty, victims may elect to seek justice and pursue a legal claim for any injuries, sexual assaults or wrongful deaths, which occur as a consequence.
