Negligent Security in Georgia
In cases where a child is injured, parents might wonder how they can bring a claim on behalf of their child. Nobody ever wants their child to be injured, especially not in school where you believe that they are afforded the highest levels of protection and care. Luckily for you, there are options in these types of situations.
Violent crimes can lead to serious injuries for those involved. If you have a loved one who has been injured in a serious accident involving a shooting or stabbing due to negligent security, you may have a right to compensation to pay for medical bills and more. These reckless actions by others put a variety of people in danger and can be prevented.
