INADEQUATE SECURITY

Atlanta Inadequate Security Attorney

Crime victims often believe they have little recourse to obtain compensation for the injuries they suffered. While the criminal justice system may deal with the criminal in terms of punishment, if the criminal was caught, that does not address medical bills, lost wages, and the pain and suffering that the victim experienced. Even if a criminal is told by the court to make financial restitution to the victim, criminals rarely have the money to comply.

If the crime was committed at a hotel, mall, gas station, bar or nightclub, or any other commercial property, and there were steps that the owner of that property could and should have taken to prevent the crime, the victim may be able to file an inadequate security claim. The attorneys at the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm in Atlanta can help.

When to File an Inadequate Security Claim Against a Property Owner

Briggs WinstonIn order for an inadequate security claim to be successful, there typically needs to be evidence that criminal or other inappropriate activity occurred on the property in the past and the property owner did not take proper steps to stop it from occurring again. For example, if a hotel has been broken into in the past and guests have been robbed, the hotel should take steps to improve security, such as installing better locks, improving lighting or adding a video surveillance system. Similarly, a bar or nightclub that has been the scene of numerous assaults should hire additional security staff to prevent fights from happening in the future.

Our lawyers handle cases involving robbery, assault, rape, murder and other crimes that could have been prevented but led to serious personal injuries or wrongful death.

“My husband died in a terrible trucking accident, leaving me a widow and my son without a father. The trucking company (that killed my husband) initially refused to accept responsibility for my husband’s death. I hired Winston Briggs and turned everything over to him. During this very difficult time, Winston took total control of the case and filed suit in federal court in Virginia.

“While cycling with a group in Roswell, I was hit by a car, resulting in emergency hospitalization for multiple injuries, two surgeries, and months of rehabilitation. The driver, who was charged with improper passing, was uncommunicative, as was his insurance company.

I sustained injuries when I was hit by a car riding my bicycle. The driver contended I was at fault for the collision. In researching attorneys, W. Winston Briggs came highly recommended as a personal injury trial attorney. I hired Mr. Briggs and his firm took over my case.
Cyclist Bruce Fernald, Atlanta, GA
I injured myself requiring surgery when I fell at a hotel in New Orleans while on business. The insurance company for the hotel initially denied responsibility for my injury and then later offered me only a modest sum to settle the case, claiming there were multiple problems with my claim. I retained Winston Briggs to handle my claim and he did the rest.

I have been fortunate to find (surfing the web) W. Winston Briggs Law Firm to take over my case after almost a year of being with a “highly recommended season” attorney who was unable to serve the defendant, claiming he was “too big to be served,” here in Atlanta?
