Negligent Security vs. Slip & Fall Claims

South Georgia property owners 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 and this leads to injury, the victim may have grounds for a premises liability claim. There are generally two primary types of claims that result from a property owner’s failure to protect others:

  • Negligent Security Claims
  • Slip and Fall Accident Claims

The premises liability attorneys at Hudson King are experienced in representing clients in both categories in Tifton, Albany, Valdosta, and all of South Georgia.

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 property owners and occupiers 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. Victims of negligent security may suffer the tragic consequences of robbery, sexual assault, or shootings.

Negligent security cases may arise with respect to crimes committed at:

  • Apartment buildings
  • Residential centers
  • Mobile home parks
  • Motels
  • Shopping centers
  • Theme parks
  • Parking lots
  • Other unsupervised or poorly supervised properties

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.

Slip & Fall Accident Attorneys Serving South Georgia

There are many different types of hazards that may present a risk of injury to a visitor on another’s property. When these cause a visitor to slip, trip, or fall, the property owner may be held legally accountable. If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, the South Georgia premises liability attorneys at Hudson King can investigate your claim and determine whether the owner knew of the hazard and did not correct it.

Some examples of slip and fall hazards include:

  • Insufficient lighting
  • Slippery walkways
  • Loose stairs
  • Cracks and/or potholes in the ground
  • Foreign objects in walkways or aisles
  • Defective or missing railings
