Inadequate Lighting or Security Injury Lawyer
You have every right to feel safe in stores, apartment buildings, hotels, shopping centers, movie theaters and other public places. The owners of those properties have a responsibility to take reasonable precautions to keep patrons and the public safe. While a property owner cannot be responsible for everything that happens on their premises, everyone knows criminals look for favorable circumstances in which to attack.
For example, a lack of proper lighting and security can increase the chances of a violent attack. Common examples of property owner negligence in this regard can include:
- Lack of security patrols
- Poor lighting
- Lack of controlled access
- Inadequate/missing security cameras
If you are the victim of a violent assault on a public property with inadequate lighting or security precautions, you may be eligible to file a premises liability negligence claim to recover damages for your injuries. Georgia personal injury lawyer Darrell T. Farr can provide more information in a private consultation.
