Did negligent security contribute to the shooting at an Auburn apartment complex and are justice and compensation available to the victim’s family?  Read Our Legal Take below to find out what legal options are available.

LOCAL NEWS

Gunfire erupted at an Auburn, Washington apartment complex late Friday, June 28, 2019, leaving one person dead and one person injured.  According to, “[t]he shooting happened at an apartment complex on the 6100 block of Terrace View Way Southeast.”  One person was killed and at least one other person was injured according to the report.

The investigation is ongoing and it is unclear if a suspect will be identified.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Residents and guests of apartment complexes have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the apartment complex is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property, and, if so, were any security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • What security measures were in place to deter crime and protect the victims and others at the time of the shooting?
  • Was the complex aware of any suspicious activity or suspicious people on property prior to the shooting?

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the apartment complex owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its residents and visitors, the victim’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss. In addition, any injured victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their injuries.

The Murray Law Firm has extensive and successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, and suggests that an immediate, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed so as to limit evidence from being altered, damaged or destroyed.  The complexities of pursuing a negligent security case are well understood by the legal team at The Murray Law Firm, and it is imperative that the victim’s family and any other injured victim retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect his interests.

Was safety negligence or an equipment malfunction a factor in this loss of life and could it have been prevented?  Read ‘Our Legal Take’ below to find out if the victim’s family may have legal avenues for justice and claims for substantial compensation.

Orem News

Orem, Utah police are investigating after an air tank explosion killed a man while he was working, Thursday morning, June 27, 2019.   According to KSL.com, “[a] man was using a tank to help spray plants at [a] Farm and Greenhouse, located at 1600 North 1545 West in Orem, around 8:30 a.m. Thursday…[t]he tank failed and exploded, killing the man.”  ABC4.com has identified the man as “Efren Perez-Sanchez of Lindon.”  The incident is still under investigation.

Read Our Legal Take below to learn whether Mr. Perez-Sanchez’s family may have an avenue to justice.

Our Legal Take

Greenhouse employees, vendors and guests have a right to safety and security while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the safety measures provided both at the greenhouse and by the manufacturer of the air tank, and whether this tragic incident may have been prevented. Relevant factual and legal inquires include, but are not limited to:

  • What air tank safety features, such as an alarm or emergency shut off, were in place to protect Mr. Perez-Sanchez?
  • Did any such safety features fail?
  • Was the tragedy a result of a catastrophic equipment malfunction?
  • Was the manufacturer or property owner aware of the potential safety risks to employees?
  • Were any attempts made to service, recall or replace the air tank prior to the incident?

Under Workers’ Compensation laws, our legal team suggests that the family of Efren Perez-Sanchez will most likely be entitled to significant compensation as a result of this accident. While Mr. Long’s family should be eligible for benefits under workers compensation laws, they may also hold a substantial third-party civil claim against the designer or manufacturer of the air tank. Based on its history and experience in representing families in workers compensation and product liability claims, The Murray Law Firm suggests that Mr. Perez-Sanchez’s family should retain legal counsel without delay so as to ensure that all evidence connected to the incident is preserved.

12-Year-Old Boy Fatally Injured in Gastonia Rock Wall Climbing Accident.

12-Year-Old Boy Fatally Injured in Gastonia Rock Wall Climbing Accident. (WSOCtv.com)

Did safety negligence contribute to the tragic loss of a young boy and are justice and compensation available to his family?

Gastonia News

A 12-year-old boy has tragically died after falling from a climbing feature at a trampoline park in Gaston County, North Carolina Wednesday night, June 19, 2019, according to WSOCtv.com.  Fox46Charlotte.com is reporting, “[t]he accident occurred…as the child was climbing a rock wall at [a] Trampoline Park located at 3940 E Franklin Blvd. in Gastonia.”  Per the report, “[a]ccording to the 911 call log with Gaston County…the child was breathing abnormally after falling about 15 feet from the wall.”  The boy was rushed to Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, but was sadly unable to revover from his injuries.  Fox46Charolette.com has identified the young child as “Matthew Lu.”

“There are several states that regulate trampoline parks or have proposed such action, but North Carolina is not one of them,” according to WSOCtv.com. Fox46Charlotte.com is reporting, “according to the NC Department of Labor, trampoline parks are excluded from the Amusement Device Safety Act and therefore are not regulated by the NCDOL, Elevator and Amusement Device Bureau.”

The investigation is ongoing according to the media outlets.

Our Legal Take

Entertainment complex patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of safety provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior injuries on the property?
  • Was the victim secured in a climbing harness and, if so, was it properly secured prior to the accident
  • Was there a sufficiently padded mat at the base of the climbing wall?
  • Was there a medical emergency protocol in place and, if so, was it followed by employees?
  • What inspection protocol does the establishment have for its entertainment features?

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 business owner or management failed to provide adequate safety and procedures to protect those on its premises, the family of the young Mattew Lu may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.  

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling safety 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 safety 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.

OUR RESULTS

The Murray Law Firm has an extensive and successful record representing victims of safety negligence, including at entertainment complexes that cater to families and young children.  We have obtained over $100 Million in verdicts and settlements for our Clients, including a $29.25 million dollar verdict for a victim of an unsafe property.

DURHAM NEWS

Gunfire erupted at a Durham, North Carolina apartment complex early Sunday morning, June 16, 2019, leaving one man injured.  According to ABC11.com, two men were robbed in an apartment parking lot overnight.  Per the report, ” it happened around 2 a.m. on Chalk Level Road when two men approached two others in the lot when a fight ensued.”  One of the suspects pulled a gun and shot one of the victims in the arm.  The suspects then took both victims wallets and ran away, according to the report.  The victim was taken to the hospital for his injuries.  

No suspects have been detained.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Residents and guests of apartment complexes have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the apartment complex is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property, and, if so, were any security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • How was the suspect able to gain access to the complex?
  • What security measures were in place to deter crime and protect the victim and others at the time of the shooting?

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the apartment complex owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its residents and visitors, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their injuries. 

The Murray Law Firm has extensive and successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, and suggests that an immediate, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed so as to limit evidence from being altered, damaged or destroyed.  The complexities of pursuing a negligent security case are well understood by the legal team at The Murray Law Firm, and it is imperative that the victim retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.
