At Legally Pink Law we understand there is nothing more heartbreaking than
the senseless death of a loved one. Our neighbors in
Georgia recently found police officers liable for the wrongful death of a pastor
Jonathan Ayers despite a jury in 2009 finding the shooting justifiable.
A Georgia jury recently awarded $2.3 million to Ayers’ widow after
he was shot and killed by undercover police officers during a drug sting
operation. The officers approached Ayers at a gas station after he had
contact with one of the targets of their operation. However, Ayers attempted
to flee the scene as the officers approached his car, exiting a Cadillac
Escalade and wearing street clothes. The officers felt endangered by his
reckless driving and fired their weapons, killing Ayers.
Though originally the shooting was found justifiable, the widow’s
wrongful death suit resulted in the award of over $2.3 million dollars.
Your Orlando wrongful death attorney knows that no amount of money can
ease the loss of a loved one, however, an award can often help the surviving
victims. If you believe your loved one has been the victim of a wrongful
death, please call The Salzmann Firm today.
