Our Atlanta personal injury lawyers know that many serious injuries and deaths have occurred due to shootings at places of business. Shooting deaths that are caused due to property owner negligence, either inside or outside a building, are typically referred to as premises liability cases in the legal world. Premises liability can occur at residences, commercial buildings or on public property.
In instances where many shootings have occurred in a specific area near a business in the past, the business owner may be responsible for not taking action and providing a security presence when someone is shot and seriously injured or killed.
If you were the victim of a serious crime, such as a shooting or sexual assault, or if you have lost a loved one on the premises of a business, you may be entitled to compensation.
