Could This Tragic Loss of Life Have Been Prevented?

According to ABC News 4, gunfire erupted “at Club Classics on Robertson Boulevard shortly before 1:30 a.m.” WCBD News reports, Mr. Brown was discovered at the scene with multiple gunshot wounds to the chest.

Our Legal Take
Generally, property owners are required to protect all residents and guests legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the nightclub owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of John Brown may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death. Additionally, the other victims may elect to pursue legal claims for their 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 victims retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
