Child Killed by Gang Member Due to Negligent Security
Our client’s child was shot and killed early in the morning on his way to school inside their Southeast San Diego apartment complex. The gangmember was found‚ convicted‚ and sentenced to life in prison without parole. The Jurewitz Law Group Injury & Accident Lawyers investigated and found that the murderer entered through a gate that was supposed to be locked and secured but whose lock had been destroyed for months. We also found that gangs frequently loitered in the complex and police were called weekly for some type of gang disturbance. With this information‚ we filed a lawsuit against the owner of the San Diego apartment complex and their property management company alleging that negligent security at the apartment complex led to the child’s wrongful death. Armed with the facts‚ our office obtained a confidential six-figure settlement against the apartment complex and the management company for their negligence (the murderer still being the overwhelmingly responsible party).
