Some Georgia stores and apartment complexes do not have adequate lighting, which leads to people being injured or assaulted while they are on the premises.

If you are one of them, you may believe that the establishment will be willing to step forward and agree to pay for your resulting losses, including your medical bills, lost wages and others that you incurred as a result of the attack on its property. Unfortunately, hotels and motels often try to evade their responsibilities to their guests who are assaulted during their stays.
