Negligent Security at Atlanta Gas Stations
Any person who drives relies on gas stations to fill up their cars, provide refreshment, and perform basic car maintenance. With so much money being exchanged, these places make an attractive target for thieves. Some people are even so daring as to try to steal cars while their owners are paying for their gas or purchasing snacks.
These incidents can lead to personal injuries. Naturally, the perpetrator of the crime is responsible for their actions. However, they may never be caught by the police. In any event, the owner of the gas station may share civil liability. This is because many customers at Atlanta gas stations are protected under premises liability law.
In short, all business owners must take reasonable steps to protect visitors from harm. A major source of potential harm is criminal activity and negligent security at Atlanta gas stations is a major contributing factor to many assaults. A dedicated negligent security attorney could help people determine whether the gas station’s owner is liable for their injuries.
