Most people think of premises liability cases as slip-and-falls. However, property owners have more obligations to people on their premises than just keeping the walkways clear and in good condition. They must also provide adequate security for guests on their property. If you are assaulted on someone else’s property, you may be able to file a lawsuit for a lack of adequate security.
Assaults in Georgia stores and businesses are on the rise. There have been disturbing recent incidents of unprovoked attacks on customers, including one brutal assault in a convenience store in Athens. Attacks do not just include assault and battery. Some customers or guests are sexually assaulted on someone else’s property. If you are assaulted on someone else’s property, you should contact a Atlanta personal injury lawyer immediately.
