If you have been injured as a result of inadequate security measures at a retail store, shopping mall or another commercial property in Georgia, you may wonder if there is anything you can do. Property owners and management companies have a duty to keep their premises reasonably safe for their guests, and when they fail to provide adequate security and a person is injured, they may be held liable as a result.
You may have been injured on a property that did not have good lighting, surveillance cameras, good locks or safety policies in place. Whether your injury occurred at a supermarket, mall, parking lot, restaurant, hotel or another commercial building, you may be able to recover damages to compensate you for your sustained losses.
When a business does not conduct proper background screens of its employees and those employees then attack a person, the business may be liable. If you have been assaulted, attacked or raped on a property that did not have adequate security measures in place, you may want to file a lawsuit against the negligent property owner or manager for failing to maintain safe premises.
At our firm, we represent clients who have suffered serious injuries due to inadequate security measures on commercial properties. We take a compassionate approach with all of our clients while zealously advocating on their behalf. We strongly believe that people should feel reasonably safe and secure when they are in a hotel or walking through a parking lot. Businesses and landlords who are aware of security risks at a property but do nothing about them should be required to pay damages to people who are assaulted or injured as a result. We understand how devastating these situations may be, and we have gathered additional information that you may find helpful on our inadequate security page.
