    Negligent Security

    Apartment complexes, office buildings and parking lots all too often are subject to a shocking lack of security. Dim lighting (or none at all), lack of proper fencing and poor camera surveillance are all ways that people can be put in harm's way. Thieves and other criminals can easily slip past the non-existent line of defense, and people can get hurt. Property owners have a duty to provide adequate security on their grounds. If you have been injured due to negligent security, contact us today.
