How Do I Choose the Right Attorney for My Negligent Security Claim?
When you have a negligent security case, you want an attorney who handles personal injury law, not an attorney who represents business deals or drafts wills. You want a lawyer who knows about negligent security claims and has experience handling negligent security claims.
Negligent security claims are very different than car accident claims. The law in Georgia on these issues is very complicated; if you do not have an attorney who knows how to handle these cases and knows what evidence is necessary to prove in order to bring your case to trial, it’s very possible your negligent security claim could be dismissed by the court. You need a lawyer who’s experienced and knowledgeable about negligent security claims specifically, not just car wrecks or slip and falls. You want a lawyer, too, who will not only handle the case just to settle it, but who will go to trial and has experience trying negligent security claims.
If you were injured or assaulted at a shopping center, hotel or motel, or an apartment complex where there was a high-crime rate in the past, and the owner of that property knew about that crime rate and didn’t take appropriate or reasonable measures to protect their customers or tenants, they may have responsibility. The defense lawyers who are defending the owner will attempt to put all the blame on the criminal himself. The owner of the complex or the shopping center or the hotel has a responsibility to protect their customers or their tenants. You want a lawyer who knows how to prove that and knows what to expect at a trial, what type of defenses to expect and how to deal with those defenses.
How Much Is My Negligent Security Claim Worth?
A lot of times, in these types of claims, it’s not really about the amount of medical bills when it comes to valuating the claim. The injuries involved are not always the same type of injuries or damages that you may have in a car accident case, and it may not be the type of scenario where you look at medical bills or lost wages. The damages may be quite different in some of these cases where someone’s been the victim of a crime.
If you’ve been the victim of a crime and you think you may have a negligent security claim against the person or party that owns the property where the crime occurred, call an attorney. We know what to look for and how to prove your damages. Often, in these types of cases, the damages are more emotional or mental.
We know what types of experts our clients need to see for their own well-being and mental health, but also to prove the injuries that he or she has suffered as a result of this crime. You want an attorney who’s experienced in handling negligent security claims and who knows how to bring to bear the right resources.
