Every year crimes occur that could have been prevented had there been adequate security on the premises. An act of violence or theft against you is considered a violation of your basic rights and can impact your physical and emotional well-being in a lasting way.
Property owners have a responsibility to provide visitors and residents of their property with basic security. When an incident occurs due to negligent security results in an injury to you or a loved one, you could have the ability to pursue monetary damages from the property owner for their failure to protect you.
The negligent security attorneys at Greenberg and Greenberg have handled cases involving premises liability, slip and fall injuries, and negligent security for years.
You may be entitled to a monetary recovery from the owners of the property where you were injured, including office complexes, shopping malls, parking garages, schools, apartment complexes, or any facility where you have been injured because of negligent, or nonexistent, security.
Consequences of Negligent Security
Property owners need to take proper measures, such as hiring security guards, placing security cameras, or installing working locks, to ensure that those present on their property are safe. Failure to do so may result in visitors or residents being robbed, raped, assaulted, or harmed in some other way.
Victims of violent crimes can suffer both physically and emotionally. Many suffer from serious depression and post-traumatic stress disorders, leaving them unable to continue with their daily routines and activities for long periods of time. Property owners can be held liable for failing to prevent or warn against danger, even though the assailants are the ones who caused the injuries. Negligent security may involve:
- Broken door locks;
- Inadequate lighting;
- Insufficient surveillance;
- Lack of security cameras or security guards; and
- Lack of warning or notification about recent criminal activity.
Negligent security cases can often be very complex. Therefore it is important to have an experienced lawyer at your side to achieve a successful result. We are knowledgeable when it comes to investigating and handling these cases in order to give our clients the best possible chance of obtaining maximum compensation.
