Shooting Victims Lawsuit Claims Lawyer
The trauma of suffering a shooting injury only adds another complex layer of pain to an already extraordinary experience. Even if the criminal responsible is caught and punished, they are rarely able to provide any help with the expenses caused by their actions. Shooting victims often incur extensive injuries, requiring months of medical treatment and therapies. One way to help offset these astronomical costs is through a premises liability lawsuit. Georgia personal injury lawyer Darrell T. Farr can explain your options in a confidential consultation.
In many cases when a shooting incident occurs, there are other persons or entities that may be partially liable. If you suffered a shooting injury or lost a loved one to a shooting incident, you may be able to pursue a premises liability negligence claim against the responsible party or parties. A thorough investigation by law enforcement will likely follow any shooting incident. You need an attorney who can investigate liability issues and other factors to help you build a case.
Mall, Shopping Center and Nightclub Premises Liability Claims
When a shooting incident happens at any commercial property or business, the property owners or managers may bear some responsibility for the attack and any resulting injuries. Business and property owners have a legal responsibility to keep patrons safe by taking reasonable security precautions. Shootings at malls, stores, shopping centers or nightclubs may have been prevented with certain security measures in place. Some of these may include:
- Security personnel
- Security cameras
- Adequate lighting
- Controlled access
- Metal detectors
Businesses and commercial property owners typically maintain premises liability insurance coverage to protect them against loss in the event of injuries that occur on their property. However, if adequate security measures were not in place, they may be liable for your injuries. Personal injury attorney Darrell T.
