Premises Liability – Negligent Hotel And Apartment Security
Atlanta, Georgia Premises Liability Litigation and Trial Lawyers
When you are a guest at a Hotel, paying for a room, you assume that the hotel has taken steps to make its premises safe. Likewise, at an apartment complex, you expect that in return for the hard earned money you pay for rent, the apartment complex owner and management company will keep the premises reasonably safe. However, this is not always the case, and every day, people are raped, shot, stabbed, and beaten on hotel and apartment property. In some cases, absolutely nothing could have been done to prevent the incident. However, in others, it becomes apparent that the hotel or apartment owner did not take the necessary precautions to protect their guests and tenants – guests and tenants who trusted that they were in a safe environment. This negligence is exhibited through inadequate lighting, broken door locks, broken windows, or poorly trained security, among other things. As a result of that negligence, innocent people are hurt and/or killed. The owners and operators must then be held accountable for their negligence.
