Assaults and Shootings Injury Claims Lawyer
When a devastating shooting or assault occurs at a public place, it is not only the person committing the assault that may be responsible. Business owners and property owners share responsibility for their patrons and visitors to provide adequate safety. Shootings and assaults at bars, clubs, restaurants, movie theaters and other businesses can cause serious injuries and death to innocent patrons. If you are a victim of an assault in Georgia, Keith D. Leshine Attorney at Law, LLC is an assault and shooting injury claim lawyer who will fight for compensation for you and your family in a premises liability case.
There have been more and more violent attacks and shootings in recent years in public areas and at businesses. While no one can prevent all illegal activities, it is the responsibility of business and commercial property owners to have safety and security measures in place to reduce the risk of harm to their patrons. This can include security cameras or personnel and rules in place to prevent suspicious activities on the property, deterring criminals with violent intents. When security or safety measures are lax, criminals are more likely to choose a business for their violent assault or shooting.
Lawsuits for Shooting Injuries or Deaths
Victims of shootings or assaults can suffer catastrophic injuries or death. While the shooter or person perpetrating the assault is responsible, they are often in jail, or may even be dead as a result of the encounter. The secondary liability falls on the property or business owner to help recover compensation to pay for medical care, lost income and other damages to the victim and their family. Our legal team can look at all possible sources of liability for injuries caused by a shooting or assault, including filing a premises liability lawsuit.
