The owners and operators of any property open to the public in Georgia have a responsibility to maintain their premises in a way that is consistent with the safety and well-being of all those who legally have the right to be there. These might include employees, visitors or people who are simply passing through.
One of the most important responsibilities of property owners is that of making sure that their property and premises are well lit. Any failure to provide at least the minimum illumination required for safe passage leaves the property owner possibly liable in the case of an accident, a crime or any other incident that causes personal injury or economic harm.
For example, if you were injured by falling in a store parking lot because you could not see where you were going, you could have a cause of action against the owner of the property. Similarly, if you have been assaulted or robbed in a poorly-lit area of an apartment complex, ATM facility or shopping center, you could be entitled to financial compensation.
