An act becomes negligent when the owner of a particular right, that also extends towards the protection of the right of another gets hampered. For example, if a doctor who is handling a patient causes any mishap despite certain rules provided, a negligent act occurs. If there is a land owner or a business owner, and any negligent act by them causes harm to people working under them or living in any space owned by them, a negligent act is said to have occurred. Such offenses are usually not foreseeable in nature, but the very occurrence of any negligent act is criminal itself. The lawyers at Ponton Law Firm are experts at scrutinizing and understanding the criminal nature of the acts that are done, and can help you holding the property owners, or business owners or anyone else for that matter, accountable for the negligent act done by them.


One of the simplest rules in Georgia is that if the owner knows about any foreseeable danger or criminal act that may be caused under any circumstance, they must make the people under them aware of the same. If the owner does not anticipate any criminal act or any act that may cause harm to the patron in any manner, they are not supposed to be held liable. Every court in Georgia, as well as Ponton Law Firm examines the occurrence of previous acts of negligence under the same ground and proceeds with the accountability of the owner or person under whose guard the harm has taken place.
