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 have been seriously injured in an accident or an assault on a property that was caused by poor lighting, you may have legally ground claims that you may file against the owner or operator.
People who have been injured in accidents or crimes committed on properties with poor lighting might be able to recover damages for the losses that they have suffered. The damages that may be available include medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages, among others. If your loved one was killed in such an incident, you might be able to recover compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit.
If you have been injured in an assault, rape, robbery or mugging in a poorly lit area, you might be able to file a lawsuit. If you suffered an injury in a slip-and-fall accident because of poor visibility either inside or outside, you may also be able to recover damages. You will need to understand the duties that are owed by property owners to people who are legally present on their premises as well as how to prove your case.
