The robbery occurred at Barcelona Wine Bar in Atlanta. Three masked and armed individuals came into the bar early one morning as employees were closing the restaurant. The regular employees who were present at the time of the robbery were restrained, and the manager was forced to open the safe. After she opened the safe, the manager was shot and killed.
Later, it was revealed that the manager, as well as another employee, had expressed their concerns about the establishment’s security to upper management. The email chain between the employees and upper management revealed that nothing was done in response to these concerns. If the family decides to move forward in this case, then this communication could possibly be used to help their case.
For many people across the nation, quitting a job because they believe conditions might be unsafe is not an option. They rely on the income and may not be able to afford the lapse in employment, which is why they rely on their employers to ensure that conditions are as safe as possible. People in Georgia who are considering filing a wrongful death suit could benefit from contacting a lawyer. If a suit is warranted, then an attorney may be able to help his or her client to receive compensation.
