The person who fired the gun will probably face serious criminal charges. Did you know you may be able to bring civil action against the owner of the property where the shooting took place for having inadequate security and failing to protect you?
Property owners are supposed to take reasonable measures to ensure the safety of everyone who visits their venue or place of business. Unfortunately, a lot of them cut corners and then try to avoid liability when someone gets seriously injured or killed as a result.
Shootings can take place anywhere, but some of the more common places they occur include:
- Shopping Malls
- Retail Stores
- Supermarkets and Grocery Stores
- Apartment Buildings
- Hotels and Motels
- Bars, Nightclubs, and Restaurants
- Office Buildings
- Parking Lots
- Gas Stations
- ATMs and Banks
Whether you were shot by a gunman in a poorly lit parking lot or an active shooter opened fire and injured you while you were inside a shopping mall, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the property owner for failing to provide adequate security.
Our dedicated Atlanta shooting victim lawyers can listen to you, answer your questions, explain your legal options, and help you figure out the best way to move your case forward. You need to act fast — the longer you wait, the more you run the risk of losing out on the compensation you’re entitled to.
Let us get started on your case right away so we can protect your rights and deliver real results.
What is inadequate security? How can a shooting victim lawyer help me?
Inadequate security lawsuits often involve a victim getting injured or killed on commercial property, such as an apartment complex or shopping plaza, due to the property owner failing to take appropriate steps to prevent foreseeable acts of violence.
For example, if the owner of a nightclub in Atlanta failed to increase security on their premises following a recent shooting in the area, that property owner could be held liable if someone were to then get injured or killed in a shooting at their club afterward. That’s because the violent act could be considered “foreseeable” since a similar crime just took place in that same area.
Other common forms of inadequate security include:
- Insufficient lighting in dark areas
- Failing to monitor security cameras/lack of security cameras
- Installing fake cameras to give a false sense of security
- Poorly trained or unqualified security guards
- Failing to fix broken locks, doors, gates, fences, etc.
If you or someone you love was shot on someone else’s property, our Atlanta shooting victim attorneys can investigate and build a strong case on your behalf to prove the property owner is legally responsible for your damages.
You may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical expenses, including the cost of future care and physical therapy
- Lost wages from missed time at work
- Loss of earning capacity
- Cost of replacement services, such as childcare or housekeeping
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death

Let an Atlanta shooting victim lawyer help you
No one should ever expect to get shot on someone else’s property, but sadly, shootings happen all the time in Atlanta and throughout Georgia. Property owners have a responsibility to protect you from known danger, yet many don’t take that responsibility seriously enough and fail to take adequate steps to keep you safe.
Our law firm can make them pay for their negligence. When you’ve been shot, the last thing you need is stress about ongoing medical costs and the financial burden that comes with being seriously injured.
Our dedicated legal team knows how to handle cases involving inadequate security and aggressively advocate for your best interests. We also offer shooting victims a “zero fee guarantee.” That means you pay nothing unless we win.
Are you the family member or loved one of someone who was tragically killed in a shooting? We can help you pursue a wrongful death claim. While no amount of money can bring your loved one back or take away your pain, recovering compensation from the negligent property owner can be an important step in the healing process.
