Our Legal Take
Parking lot 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 violence on near the property?
- Was the suspect seen on the property before the incident?
- What security measures, such as surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Rudolph 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 parking lot owners or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Jeremy Rudolph may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.
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 Mr. Rudolph’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
