$3,750,000 Settlement – Apartment Complex Shooting

Shiver Hamilton negotiated a settlement on behalf of a young man who was shot at a DeKalb County apartment complex. The young man was visiting with friends at the apartment complex when he was approached by a stranger and shot in the leg. Our client ultimately lost his leg below the knee due to the gunshot wound. Shiver Hamilton learned during litigation that a fatal shooting had occurred in the same complex not long before our client was shot and alleged that the complex should have provided security that could have prevented the shooting that resulted in the amputation of our client’s leg.
