Sexual Assault, Assault and Inadequate Premisis Security
Sometimes sexual assaults can take place in a place that should have been safe like a motel, hotel, shopping mall, public restroom, apartment complex, parking garage, restaurant or other public or residential place and can result in some serious injuries. The party responsible for the security of the place may have been negligent. If you are a victim of sexual assault in a place which should have been safe, contact the personal injury lawyers at The Burnside Firm for a free consultation. We will investigate and identify the party whose failure to provide adequate security led to the attack.
We understand the feeling of a sexual assault victim. Sexual assault can involve serious injuries and emotional trauma. While the police and law enforcement will bring the attacker to justice, we can help you make the party responsible for the security of the place accountable.
We can investigate and identify the inadequate security measures such as:
- Inadequate lighting in stairwells and parking lots
- Failure to respond to requests for help
- Malfunctioning or inadequate door locks in apartment buildings or hotels
- Failure to post security guards
- Inadequate or insufficient security staff
- Failure to adequately screen guests and visitors
- Lack of or malfunctioning security cameras pr phones
- Failure to warn about potential threats
Georgia law requires property owners and managers to provide safe premises for patrons and guests. Premises owners can be held liable for sexual assault, injuries and wrongful deaths that result from inadequate security measures.
