No person should ever have to the suffer the pain and indignity of a physical or sexual assault. If you have been the victim of rape, physical assault, a gunshot, armed robbery or another assault, our premises liability lawyers at Law & Moran in Atlanta have experience filing civil actions to collect personal injury damages. Our attorneys have a strong record of success in cases where a person has been assaulted at a hotel or apartment building.
The Duty To Take Reasonable Precautions
Owners of hotels, apartment buildings and other commercial establishments have a duty to take reasonable precautions for the safety of the public. Reasonable precautions can include:
- Adequate lighting
- Security cameras
- Safety procedures
- Security patrol sweeps
Owners of hotels, apartments and other commercial properties have a duty to take reasonable steps to protect the public from physical attacks. In order to successfully recover damages, a plaintiff does not have to prove that the assailant was an employee. Even if the assailant was a third-party criminal, a victim may recover damages from the property owner if the property owner was negligent. Their negligence could include a failure to provide adequate security and take appropriate safety measures and precautions.

No amount of money can make up for a rape or assault victim’s suffering. But reaching a significant settlement can help a victim find justice.
