Failing to Provide Security Can Lead to Tragedy
Premises liability refers to the laws that make property owners liable for injuries sustained on their property. It is the responsibility of every property owner, both public and private, to ensure that the premises are safe for anyone walking through the area. For example, was there inadequate security at a business you patronized (such as a bar, hotel, or other location)? Inadequate security (such as inadequate lighting, broken locks and inactive or faulty surveillance equipment) could result in the business being liable for your injuries, even if a third party assaulted or attacked you.
Our lawyers have extensive experience in handling cases arising form negligent security such as when property owners fail to implement sufficient security measures. Attacks can occur in a variety of locations including:
- Private residences
- Restaurants, bars and nightclubs
- Retail stores and shopping malls
- Government buildings
- Office buildings
- Other businesses open to the public
If you have sustained an injury as a result of negligent security, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses and future care, lost wages, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. Our lawyers have the knowledge and experience to aggressively pursue a favorable outcome in your case.
