Georgia Courts Hold Corporation Responsible for Failing to Provide Adequate Security for Customers

In Wade v. Findlay Management, Inc., a negligent security case, a McDonald’s restaurant knew that children and others using its playground were in danger of being attacked. Still, the McDonald’s failed to provide reasonable security for its customers or issue any warnings to them. When a customer got hurt, the Georgia Court of Appeals protected the crime victim by holding McDonald’s responsible for the inadequate security.
