Atlanta Gas Station Attack Attorney

Gas stations in Atlanta are hotspots for criminal activity – especially at night. Gas stations are often open late, may or may not have adequate security, and require patrons to exit their vehicles to pump gas. Common gas station crimes include robberies, muggings, and vehicle theft. If you suffered an attack at a gas station, seek the help of a professional Atlanta gas station attack attorney. You may have a premises liability case against the owner of the property. Filing a claim for your attack can lead to compensation for your personal injuries, lost property, and emotional suffering.

Crime and Negligent Security in Georgia

In many cases, a harmful assault or crime such as a gas station attack is preventable with adequate property security. A building owner is responsible for implementing a security system when there is a foreseeable risk of an attack. The foreseeability of an attack is the key here – a property owner with no reason to know of the potential for crime will likely not be liable for a subsequent attack.

If, however, the property owner knew of prior crimes on the property or in the surrounding area, yet failed to hire a security guard, post cameras, or otherwise provide for the safety of patrons, the courts may hold him or her liable for an attack. Negligent security is a form of premises liability and is the responsibility of the property owner or lessee of the building. Georgia courts may deem that a property owner was negligent in his or her lack of security if the owner knew or reasonably should have known about:

In Georgia, it’s a property owner’s responsibility to research a gas station and gain an accurate depiction of the odds of criminal activity. Often, property owners need to speak with Atlanta personal injury lawyers or law enforcement officials to determine the foreseeability of a gas station criminal attack.

Appropriate Gas Station Security Measures

If you were the victim of a criminal attack at a gas station, Jiffy, or convenience store in Georgia, work with an Atlanta gas station attack attorney to investigate the property owners. A lawyer at The Dixon Firm, P.C. can help you find out if the owner knew or reasonably should have known about previous issues in the area. If there is a chance of criminal activity, a property owner needs to invest in adequate security measures to prevent an attack. This may include:

Failure to put proper security measures on a property after learning about the risk of an attack can result in liability. In Georgia, it’s a gas station owner’s duty to show due diligence in discovering potential dangers and taking steps to prevent harm. Criminal attacks are no exception. An owner’s neglect to implement a security system could lead to someone else’s severe personal injury or wrongful death.

The Dixon Firm was the best choice hands down. Attorney Ramos and his Associate, Priscilla were very professional and honest. Right from the beginning of contact we were put at ease and assured that our concerns would be addressed and resolved to satisfaction. Every bullet point regarding our case was discussed in detail and we felt comfortable with each update given. Priscilla was phenomenal. Her tone, her energy and her heartfelt empathy was much needed during this process. The way she explained EVERYTHING in layman’s terms when needed was helpful and assured us that we were in good care. Not once was there a question in our minds if we made a mistake in representation. 10/10 definitely recommend. Congratulations to an amazing team for being THE BEST LAW FIRM in ATLANTA,

If you have ever experienced injury from a car accident then you are aware of how it can change your life physically and financially. I was so relieved to have Troy Kiber represent me. He treated me like a friend and not just another case on his calendar. He explained the process to me clearly and allowed me to make decisions based on what was best for me not just what would quickly resolve the case. I truly appreciate him for his thoroughness. I was very satisfied with the service I received and pleasantly surprised at the outcome.

I highly recommend the Dixon Firm

I have to say I am very impressed with The Dixon Firm. My case was very different then most injury cases because it involved my son and an injury at school. Most lawyers I looked into hiring were too afraid to take on my case. But not the Dixon firm! I was given a chance to be heard and Rod and his amazing staff and lawyers took on my case. Daniel Adamson was my lawyer and he communicated with me through it all! I was a little concerned with the pandemic that I’d be waiting forever but this was not the case, Daniel stayed on my case and worked diligently and kept in contact with me every step of the way. I highly recommend the Dixon Firm and ask for Daniel, he will not disappoint! Thanks Daniel for everything you did for me and my son!
