Confidential settlement – gas station shooting/death (Miami) starstarstarstarstar

Convenience stores and gas stations present security risks because they are crime magnets.  Unfortunately carjackings, muggings and sexual assaults are all too common at gas stations, mini marts and convenience stores.

John Elliott Leighton represented the parents of a 16 year-old boy who was shot and killed during a carjacking at a gas station in Miami  The national oil company and the local franchisee were sued for this young man’s death.  Mr. Leighton demonstrated that the facility was used for drug deals, and its pay phones attracted a dangerous crowd including prostitutes.  A confidential settlement was obtained for the parents of this young man.

Leighton Law continues to bring meritorious cases on behalf of the victims and families of those shot, robbed and sexually assaulted at gas stations, mini marts and convenience stores throughout Florida.
