$6.25 Million Settlement in Negligent Security Case

After rejecting an initial offer of $100,000.00, a $6.25 million settlement was recently awarded to a young father.  His case involved allegations of inadequate security at a restaurant where he was shot at in 2007.   As a result of the shooting, the plaintiff was permanently paralyzed below the waist.

While at a restaurant in the early hours of June 4, 2007, the plaintiff was robbed and shot by local gang members. Due to past criminal activity at the location, the police department had requested that the restaurant hire off-duty police officers to provide security while the only security around that night was unarmed.   The Plaintiff had an expert testify that the security provided was grossly inadequate.  While the jury deliberated, both the franchisee and the security company agreed to settle the Plaintiff’s claims.
