Negligent Security Can Lead To Serious Injuries

Property owners and managers have a duty to take reasonable steps to ensure the security of their property and the safety of their visitors. When owners are negligent or lax, innocent people can get hurt.

If you were assaulted in an apartment, hotel, shopping center or other commercial property due to negligent security, you may be entitled to compensation. At the Stone Law Group in Atlanta and Blakely, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. Call 404-436-2766 to talk to a lawyer.

What Is Negligent Security?

Negligent security refers to many types of negligence that can lead to rape or other assaults. Examples of negligent security include:

  • Lack of surveillance cameras
  • Unsecured premises
  • Inappropriate lighting levels
  • Lack of mirrors or visibility at hallway corners
  • Lack of attendants at parking garages
  • Injuries caused by overzealous security guards

While a rape or another assault is an act committed by a predator, the property owner where the attack occurred can be held responsible if it was negligent. If you were injured due to negligent security in Atlanta and Blakely or any community throughout Georgia, schedule a consultation at our firm. We can discuss your case and provide clear direction regarding your legal options for monetary compensation.

What Is Overzealous Security?

It is not uncommon for private security guards to become overzealous in their actions. Whether this means a bouncer at a nightclub used too much force in removing you from the premises or mall security guards used excessive force in restraining a suspected shoplifter, security personnel must exercise caution and good judgment when handling the public. If you or a loved one was injured by a security officer, do not hesitate to contact a lawyer in our office.
