  2. 2. VIOLENCE HAPPENS It’s an unfortunate fact of life that violence happens. Human beings are going to harm other human beings, whether because they have something to gain from it or because they simply enjoy hurting people.

  3. 3. VIOLENCE ON BUSINESS PREMISES Businesses have a duty to make sure they do all they can to prevent violence from taking place on their property. This can mean things like hiring security guards, putting up security cameras, or even things as simple as keeping spaces well-lit at night. Businesses have a duty to keep their spaces as safe as possible, but many fail in this duty, many are negligent, and some try to hide violent events that take place on their property. z thestoddardfirm.com Call us today at: 404.593.2695 or 678-RESULTS
  4. 4. PREMISES LIABILITY If a business allows violent criminal acts to take place on its property, they can be found liable in a premises liability case. In premises liability, the victim must prove that the business had a duty of care to ensure that their property was reasonably safe, that the business was negligent in this duty, and that the negligence contributed to the situation that allowed the victim to be harmed. If the business is found liable for the harm the victim suffered, the victim will be awarded damages for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, and a variety of other causes. z thestoddardfirm.com Call us today at: 404.593.2695 or 678-RESULTS
  5. 5. WHAT ARE THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF OWNERS/MANAGERS? Businesses have a number of responsibilities to ensure their customers and other visitors are reasonably safe. They have to keep walkways safe, clearly mark potentially dangerous areas, and keep people safe from violent attacks. Many businesses fulfill these duties in similar ways. Businesses that see a lot of foot traffic will often use security cameras. Businesses where violence is likely to take place will often employ the services of a security guard or group of guards. z thestoddardfirm.com Call us today at: 404.593.2695 or 678-RESULTS
  6. 6. HOW MIGHT OWNERS OR MANAGERS BE NEGLIGENT? Some businesses don’t live up to their responsibilities. They might not have security cameras. They might not have a sufficient security team. They might allow their security guards to neglect their duties. When businesses are negligent in these and other ways, they create the conditions where violence is likely to take place. Some business owners and managers even know that violence is possible or likely, and instead of acting to prevent further violence only try to hide that the violence has taken place. z thestoddardfirm.com Call us today at: 404.593.2695 or 678-RESULTS
  7. 7. TYPES OF CRIMES WHERE SECURITY MIGHT BE NEGLIGENT Security might be negligent in ways that allow any kind of crime to take place.

They must be punished for their failures and made to prevent further events from happening on their property. z thestoddardfirm.com Call us today at: 404.593.2695 or 678-RESULTS
  8. 8. WHAT DO NEGLIGENT SECURITY CASES LOOK LIKE? Because the resources of the businesses in question are often significantly higher than the resources of any individual victim, negligent security cases can be extremely labor-intensive and heavy on the research. The Stoddard Firm looks deep into the facts about the property in question to find out whether the business owners and managers did all they could to ensure the safety of individuals on their property. z thestoddardfirm.com Call us today at: 404.593.2695 or 678-RESULTS
  9. 9. WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR IN NEGLIGENT SECURITY CASES? In negligent security cases, The Stoddard Firm looks for two main things: 1. The first thing we look for is whether or not there was a pattern of violent crime occurring at the property in question. 2. The second thing we look for is whether a lack of security precautions contributed to the victim’s injury. This can include things like a lack of security, poor lighting, malfunctioning property features, and broken windows, door locks, or controlled-access gates. z thestoddardfirm.com Call us today at: 404.593.2695 or 678-RESULTS
