Your safety and security is the number one priority, and many people are unaware that business owners, landlords and other property owners have an obligation to provide adequate security for their customers and guests. It is their duty to keep the premises safe by implementing measures to protect against violent crimes. This could include measures such as installing video cameras and appropriate door locks, providing adequate lighting and running background checks on tenants or employees.
Did you know that Gwinnett County had more than 23,000 crimes committed in 2010, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation? From 2009 to 2010, there was a 15 percent increase in rape crimes.
When property owners fail to take reasonable steps to protect customers or tenants from foreseeable harm, they can be held legally responsible for any bad acts that occur. If you have been injured during an assault or other criminal act, you have the right to file a negligent security lawsuit against the property owner and could be eligible for compensation.
