Negligent Security vs. Slip and Fall Claims
Property owners in South Georgia have a duty to protect tenants, visitors,
and customers on their property from unreasonable dangers. When a property
owner does not correct an unsafe condition that leads to injury, the victim
may have a claim. There are generally two types of claims that result
from a failure to protect others:
Negligent Security and
Slip and Fall claims. The premises liability attorneys at Hudson King are experienced
in representing clients in both categories.
Understanding Negligent Security Claims
Many crime victims do not know that they may have a civil claim against
the owner and/or occupier of the property where the crime occurred. The
law places upon owners and occupiers of land a greater duty to tenants,
visitors, and customers to protect them not only from their own negligent
conduct, but from the criminal acts of others that cause personal injury.
Many victims of negligent security suffer awful consequences including
sexual assaults and shootings. A typical case might be where a person
at an apartment complex was assaulted by a criminal in his or her apartment.
Negligent security cases often arise with respect to:
- Apartment buildings
- Residential centers
- Mobile home parks
- Shopping centers
- Other unsupervised or poorly supervised areas of the property
Oftentimes, these crimes could have been prevented if normal security measures
had been in place. When investigating these cases, we obtain a criminal
history of the location. Usually, a crime grid is available, which can
give us access to all crimes that have occurred within a specific location.
We also retain professionals and experts to evaluate the validity of a
case and prove that a crime could have been prevented if normal security
measures had been successfully implemented.
What is a slip and fall accident?
There are many physical hazards that can injury someone at a public business.
Foreign objects on floors, leaking air conditioning units causing slippery
walkways, unsecured doors, or unstable infrastructure can fall and impact
someone. The attorneys at Hudson King will investigate your claim and
determine whether the owner knew of the hazard and did not correct it.
Slip and fall injuries can be caused in a number of ways, and an individual
may become the victim of such an accident due to:
- Insufficient lighting
- Slippery walkways
- Loose stairs
- Cracks and / or potholes in the ground
