Negligent Security

When property owners fail to secure their premises, what do you do?

If you live in a housing complex, use a business, or are on someone else's property, you should expect your personal safety to be preserved and not threatened due to lack of security. Property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises safe and accessible. And if you or a loved one sustain an injury on someone else's property, you may be able to take legal action against the property owner for your injuries.

Negligent security personal injury cases can result in permanent, devastating injuries, as well as emotional and financial trauma. They are the product of the blatant negligence of a property owner, and should be addressed in order to facilitate proper compensation of the victim's losses. Our negligent security attorneys at Burns, Bryant, Cox, Rockefeller & Durkin, P.A. can help you or a loved one recover from the events of your negligent security case.

    Crime as a result of negligent security

    There are several types of crimes that can arise as a result of having inadequate security on premises. They include:

    • Burglary
    • Auto theft
    • Assault

    Apartment buildings, office complexes, parking lots and the premises of businesses are some of the most vulnerable to these types of crimes. There are many contributing factors, such as lack of proper lighting, lack of security presence, fencing and proper working alarm systems that may contribute to the occurrence of a crime. After all, someone with ill intent only has to access a property and take advantage of their surroundings in order to commit a crime.

    Inadequate security puts you at risk

    When walking to our cars in a mall parking lot, we expect to be able to see and to be able to stay safe. However, in inadequate lighting, this situation may easily be taken advantage of by a potential mugger, or lead to a potential assault. We expect to be able to leave and enter our offices and homes in well-lit, secured areas that we feel safe walking in. If a crime occurred and proof exists that it was the result of a property owner failing to secure the premises, the property owner may be held liable for any injuries or losses that took place due to a lack of security under premises liability law. Those who suffer deserve compensation, and adequate representation. Contact us. Our Dover and Portsmouth firm will give you the respect you deserve and fight for the compensation you're entitled to under the law.
