If you were injured after an assault on someone else’s property, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the owner of that property – whether or not they played a direct role in the incident. But taking legal action after an assault on private property can be a very complex undertaking. You’ll need the help of an experienced Albany premises liability attorney. That’s exactly what you’ll get when you turn to The Shrable Law Firm, P.C. We have a team of legal experts who have a deep understanding of this area of the law. You can contact us online for a free evaluation of your case, or you can give us a call at (229) 349-6291.
Elements of assaultMost people assume that an assault always involves a physical attack. But that’s not the case in Georgia. According to the law in our state, simple assault occurs when someone attempts to injure another person. It can also occur when someone places another person in a situation where they have a reasonable fear that they’ll be severely hurt.
What are a property owner’s responsibilities regarding safety?Georgia law mandates that property owners have a legal duty to ensure the safety of anyone visiting that property. It doesn’t matter whether the property is a restaurant, a retail establishment, a private home, or some other type of property. The owner must maintain the property safely, make sure all visitors know of potential hazards, and take reasonable steps to keep them from harm.
Can you sue if you’re injured?In most cases, yes. If the property owner failed to fulfill their legal duties, and that failure caused your injury, you’ll likely be able to take legal action against them. A homeowner, for example, may have invited you to a party knowing there were others in attendance who could pose a danger. That homeowner could have foreseen the potential for trouble, yet did nothing to make sure everyone at the party was safe. If someone assaulted you in the parking lot of a restaurant in a high-crime area, you might be able to sue the owner if they failed to provide adequate lighting or security.
What are potential legal remedies if you’re assaulted on private property?You could not only pursue criminal charges against the person committing the assault, but you could also file a civil lawsuit against the negligent property owner. But it’s important you know that you’ll have to bear the burden of proof. As the plaintiff in the case, you’ll have to be able to show that the property owner was negligent and that you suffered injuries due to their negligence. This kind of case can become very complicated. That’s why you’ll need a lawyer who knows how to handle lawsuits from an assault on private property. You should hire an attorney as soon as possible so they can investigate the incident and determine who is liable.

reviews from our injury clients
I have had occasion to deal with Mr. Shrable on a number of occasions. I have found Mr. Shrable to be always prepared, to be a worthy advocate for his clients, and to be well versed in the law with respect to the issues with which he has been confronted. I give him my very high recommendation.
My experience working with Shrable Law Firm was very professional. Beau Shrabe kept me informed on everything that would help with the case. I’m very pleased with the outcome and hard work this law firm put in. I will most differently recommend Shrable Law firm to any of my friends.
Beau and his staff are very professional. They kept me informed at all times about my case. Beau himself would contact me directly. I was with one attorney & wasn’t very satisfied. Beau handled my case very fast and I am greatly appreciative.
Can’t thank this firm enough for helping my family in a time of need. Another lawyer turned us down but this firm took our case and saw it through to a great result. Highly recommend it.
Mr. Shrable was a pleasure to work with. His firm helped me with a franchise agreement and I was extremely impressed with the language that was created and how straightforward everyone was with me during the process. I would use them again.
Yes I highly recommend this place for car accident injuries. They are very respectable and helpful. They keep you updated with your case very frequently and work very hard for their client’s. Love love love them. ❤️❤️
Very fair and will try their best to get what you need, very caring and kind, I recommend this firm to anyone that is looking for someone to fight a case for you.
Great representation for our family when we needed it. He represented us in a vehicle accident lawsuit. We were super impressed at how prepared our lawyer was when we had the deposition. Put us at ease while dealing with an unfortunate (& quite ridiculous) situation. A minimal settlement for the opposing party. Such Friendly, professional staff including the administrative staff. Would highly recommend.
I had the displeasure of being sued after a recent automobile accident. Beau was given my case by my insurance company and handled it well. The plaintiff’s case was weak and the settlement was well below policy limits. I would definitely recommend Beau and The Shrable Law Firm in Americus to others looking for a solid attorney to represent their best interests
Mr. Shrable took on my husband’s case when no one else would. He worked diligently to get it resolved. We are very pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend him.
Amazing work and great customer service. They work hard to get you everything that you deserve. Someone is always available for the client and when you call someone answers, not an automated answer service. Highly recommended for any legal needs that you have.
Beau and his team were very communicative and continued to keep me updated on my case! They explained everything very thoroughly to me so that I understood what was going on. Everytime was done in a timely manner and I’m very thankful I went with him!
My experience with Shrable Law Firm was second to none! Being a veteran it was awesome to work with a veteran owned Law Firm! I would definitely recommend this Law Firm in the future!
It was a great experience having Beau Shrable as our personal injury attorney. He was professional, efficient, and personable. I highly recommend The Shrable Law Firm’s services.
Mr. Shrable went beyond what I expected from an attorney. He made me feel like a part of his family and that he truly cared about my case. I would recommend him to anyone.
I can’t say enough good things about this firm. The character and level of standards that Beau and his team operate by are rarely found. These guys are hands down as good as it gets. I would HIGHLY recommend The Shrable Law Firm, P.C. to anyone in need of legal work.
I continue to retain this office for their services. It’s very difficult to find an honest, professional, friendly, personable law firm. I would recommend anyone who needs help to pick up the phone and start here first.
Beau was one of my defense counsel for about 5 years. Without hesitation, I would hire him again and again. Beau is up front, honest, reliable and knowledgeable. Trust your cases or your clients with him. You will not be sorry!
Courteous & Professional. Do not hesitate to contact The Shrable Law Firm. You will be treated with dignity and class and will be very satisfied with your experience.
Exceptionally knowledgeable and affable, Mr. Shrable demonstrated integrity rarely observed in this day and age. I appreciate his expeditious legal advice, will use his services again should the need arise, and highly recommend his law firm.
Beau went above and beyond after my car accident to make sure that the entire process was handled smoothly and efficiently. The person that rear ended me did not have insurance and that was a huge concern of mine but Beau took care of everything!
Excellent and dedicated attorney. He knows what insurance companies don’t want accident victims to know and makes sure insurance companies do what’s right.
No experience has ever been enjoyable with a lawyer. But after working with Beau on numerous occasions, I have found out it doesn’t have to be that way. Great guy, hard-working and very knowledgeable.
