Atlanta Premises Liability Lawyers. We Represent Victims of Violent Crime.
Many victims of violent crime who are attacked at a business are not aware of their legal rights. Under Georgia law, tenants at an apartment complex, guests of a hotel, and customers at a store, restaurant or other business have the right to expect the business to keep their property safe from dangerous conditions, including criminal activity.
Simply put, a business owner cannot “look the other way” when criminals are committing crimes at their property and putting innocent people in danger of being attacked. This includes business owners in Atlanta, GA and the rest of the State. In addition, if a property owner fails to exercise ordinary care to keep the property safe, Georgia premises liability law (O.C.G.A. § 51-3-1.) provides a cause of action for victims to hold the owner liable for the injuries suffered and resulting damages caused by the owner’s failure.
When a property owner fails in this duty — whether as a result of inadequate or negligent security, failure to warn tenants or customers of the danger, negligent employee training, etc. — crimes like murder, aggravated assault, armed robbery, and rape/sexual assault are more likely to occur, often resulting in lifelong suffering and sometimes even wrongful death.
Although many premises liability claims involve slip and fall injuries, others are brought by victims of crimes at unsafe places. These claims are often based on the negligent failure by the property owners to keep their premises safe.
Under the law, the property owner or landlord may be responsible for paying money damages to the victim of a criminal assault committed on their property. This is called premises liability. With the help of an Atlanta premises liability lawyer, victims and their families may be entitled to compensation for physical, emotional, and financial injuries.
