Rape, Sexual Assault and Abuse

Compassionate and Successful Atlanta Lawyer for Rape, Sexual Assault and Abuse VictimsLiability for Rape, Sexual Assault and Abuse

Property owners are required to ensure that premises such as hotels, office buildings and apartment buildings are as safe as they can be. Although we all need to be aware of our surroundings, when we don’t have control over them and someone else does, we can be vulnerable to criminal acts. Georgia premises liability law supports the right of victims that have been raped or assaulted on the property of another to hold the owner legally responsible for their injuries and their pain and suffering under certain circumstances. Property owners that owe a duty to the victim of a violent crime because they are a tenant, a hotel guest or other, can be held accountable when injury results.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a violent crime on someone else’s property, it is important to get legal guidance. These crimes can lead to depression or substance abuse because they are traumatic. Atlanta, Georgia’s Charles Scholle represents individuals who have been raped, abused or assaulted in these situations. His experience litigating cases involving serious injury and the compassion with which he practices law on behalf of his clients, makes him uniquely qualified to handle these emotionally charged and painful cases. His clients trust him to devote his legal ability and compassionate representation to work as hard as possible for them.

There are many situations in which criminal acts are made easier because the property owner failed to protect the public. For example, hotel elevators, parking lots and other common areas are often the places where criminals lurk and have the opportunity to commit violent crimes such as rape and sexual assault. This can happen when there are faulty security measures taken in a public building -- such as poorly trained security personnel, inadequate locks or accessible windows -- that make it easier for an intruder to get in and to commit a crime. This can also happen when there is inadequate lighting in a parking lot and/or no security cameras in a dark hallway.

Legal Help for Criminal Acts That Lead to Injuries

If you have suffered an injury because of a violent crime that took place in a public building, such as an apartment, hotel, office building or similar situation, you may be entitled to recover monetary damages from the property owner. They are legally responsible for any injuries that result including injuries from rapes and assaults and the difficult emotional recovery from those crimes. Victims have the right to bring a lawsuit against the property owner to be compensation for their injuries as well as medical bills, lost wages from missed work and pain and suffering.
