Georgia Negligence Attorneys Serving Alpharetta, Atlanta, and all Georgia

Owners of property that are required to provide some degree of security such as fences, lighting, security cameras and security patrols or personnel can be held liable for physical injuries suffered by customers or patrons as a result of assault, rape or other abuse on their property. If you or someone you know has suffered injuries from a beating or assault while on such a property you should contact a lawyer at Van Sant Law, to learn what we can do to help you with your case.

Owners and managers of property have a responsibility to prevent crimes on their property and to protect their customers, renters, patrons, or visitors from potential abuse or criminal actions. Businesses such as hotels, motels, apartment complexes, restaurants, and theater in high crime areas are expected to take extra precautions including video surveillance, security systems, night lighting, alarm systems, and even guards to prevent crimes from occurring. When such measures are not maintained or repaired and someone is attacked or hurt when it could have been prevented with such measures in place, they can be held liable as negligent for the medical treatments, other expenses and pain and suffering of the victim.

Proving a Premises Liability Case

If the owner, manager or operator of a public property such as an apartment or hotel knows there is a potential danger of a criminal activity on their property or has been informed of a security breach such as a broken lock or burned out parking lot lighting they may be considered negligent, and can be held responsible for any injury or death that occurs. There is no excuse for such negligent behavior. We fight aggressively to get the maximum settlement possible in such cases. Our personal injury lawyers are very experienced in premises liability cases and we are committed to helping each of our clients get the justice and full financial compensation they deserve. If you or a loved one has suffered from injuries sustained in a criminal assault, beating or rape while on someone’s property that failed to provide sufficient security measures you should contact our offices to schedule a free case evaluation.

I was in a car accident with a tractor trailer two years ago and David Van Sant came highly recommended for someone I could talk to about the situation. Best decision I've ever made! He fought for me in ways that was truly amazing. David and his crew worked so hard to come to a great conclusion on my case. Thank you David, Michael and everyone in the office. Mary
