Negligent Security

Our premises liability attorney explains how this law effectively works. He tells us how important it is to obtain and retain a lawyer that you trust and feel comfortable with in order to achieve desired results. He explains that his firm is small enough to get to know clients on a personal level, which usually results in a more comfortable case.

Lawful Obligations of Business Owners and Security Companies

When shopping, visiting a public or private property, or renting a property from another party, individuals should not have to be concerned about their personal safety. In some cases, bright lights, security cameras, and security guards can be necessary to adequately secure a property. Premises liability law states that customers, visitors, and apartment building residents have a right to expect the premises to be safe. Any failure to do so can be considered professional negligence. If an assault or other violent act occurs on a commercial property as the result of negligent security, the property owner, security company, or both may be liable. This is particularly true when there is a known risk factor involved, such as a high crime rate in the area, a history of crime on the property, or specific threats against the property.

How You Can be Compensated

If you or someone you love was injured or victimized on a commercial property, we will work to establish evidence that your injury resulted from another party's negligence. This can be accomplished by showing that there were inadequate safety measures in place. If it can be proven that a property owner or security company acted negligently, you may be entitled to financial compensation for:

  • Medical Bills: You may be eligible to receive compensation for past, present, and future medical bills relating to your injury.
  • Loss of Wages: If you are forced to miss work due to an injury, it may be possible to receive compensation for past, present, and future loss of wages.
  • Pain and Suffering: If you suffered a traumatic injury or someone in your family was injured or killed, it may be possible to recover damages for the emotional pain and suffering this caused you.
  • Loss of Quality of Life: If a permanent injury resulting from the incident causes irreparable damage to your quality of life, you may be eligible for monetary compensation.

Furthermore, if it can be proven that the parties responsible acted with gross negligence, it may also be possible to pursue punitive damages. Punitive damages are fees leveraged against the negligent party for the purpose of punishment. No matter the circumstances of your negligent security lawsuit, we will do everything possible to maximize your claim.
