Negligent Security

Have you suffered a personal injury which resulted from an assault or attack at an apartment complex, hotel, restaurant, or other business property or adjacent parking area? These types of personal injury fall under a liability claim known as negligent security.

A Skilled Premises Liability Attorney Can Help You Prove Your Negligent Security Claim

In order to successfully prevail in a negligent security claim you need to be able to prove that your injuries were the result of a criminal activity and that the owner/management should have foreseen that criminal activity was possible and did not take ordinary care to keep their premises safe for clients and invitees (O.C.G.A. 51-3-1). A personal injury attorney has the knowledge and investigative skills needed to help establish causation and foreseeability. This makes it very important to hire an Atlanta negligent security attorney if you have been injured due to a criminal activity on the premises of a business.

Fighting For Your Interests

The business owner’s insurance company is going to work to avoid liability or to reduce the amount of liability their clients are responsible for, making it important to have someone with legal knowledge and skill on your side – your personal injury attorney. As your Atlanta personal injury attorney, Joel will fight not only to establish liability on the part of the owner, but also to minimize apportionment of damages under O.C.G.A 51-12-33 which allows a jury to apportion some blame to the criminal and can reduce liability on the part of the owner.

Because these types of premises liability cases can be very complex it makes it vital to have a personal injury attorney on your side, who can perform a detailed investigation including securing a court order to gain access to the crime scene when needed, getting expert witness testimony, preserving critical evidence, discovering any prior criminal activity in the area, and finding out if the owner/manager had prior knowledge of such.
