Atlanta's laws on negligent security

In Atlanta, property owners have a duty to ensure visitors' safety, including protection from criminal activity. Negligent security, or inadequate security measures, can make property owners liable for injuries resulting from criminal behavior. Victims of crimes that occur on private property can file lawsuits against property owners, and a lawyer can assist in identifying evidence of negligent behavior. If you or someone you know has been a victim of a crime on someone else's property, contact the Law Office of James T. Ponton, LLC to understand your legal options.

Security Measures for Premises in Atlanta:

Property owners have a legal obligation to ensure visitors' safety from criminal activity on their premises. Negligent security occurs when property owners fail to provide adequate security measures against third-party unlawful acts. Failure to comply with this legal regulation can make landowners civilly liable for any injuries caused by criminal behavior. The sufficiency of security measures to protect visitors is crucial in any claim for negligent security. Accidents may still occur, even if landowners believe their security measures comply with legal requirements, resulting in damage.

With the help of an attorney, you can investigate the causes of your injuries, uncover evidence of negligent landowner behavior, and add the landowner as a co-defendant in a personal injury lawsuit.

Inadequate Security Resulting in Injury:

Under O.C.G.A. § 51-3-1, a landowner who fails to maintain their property and causes injury is responsible for damages. In Georgia, victims of third-party criminal attacks resulting from inadequate security conditions can file lawsuits against property owners and companies. While the offender may be held accountable for the injury caused by a violent crime, the proprietor can also be held liable if there was insufficient security provided on private property.

Determining whether security measures are adequate is open to interpretation and depends on factors such as the property's location, time of day, and industry standards if the incident happened on a business property. The jury in a case is ultimately responsible for deciding if inadequate security contributed to the crime.

A lawyer can help investigate the victim's injuries, identify evidence of negligent landowner behavior, and include the landowner as a co-defendant in a personal injury claim.

Final thoughts:

If you or someone you know was a victim of a crime on someone else's property due to inadequate security, the property owner may be held legally accountable. To understand your legal options and hold negligent landowners responsible for their actions, seek the assistance of an Atlanta premises liability lawyer today.
