Glendale Negligent Security Attorneys
Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable
When you enter someone else’s property, such as a friend’s home or commercial space, the person who owns and/or manages the premises has a legal duty to protect you from harm and warn you of any dangers on the property. If they fail to do so and you get hurt, or if you sustain an injury that could have been prevented had they taken better care of their property, you can take legal action against them. This includes filing a lawsuit for damages following violent, criminal acts that take place due to a lack of adequate security.
If you or someone you know has been attacked, assaulted, robbed, or otherwise harmed by someone else while on property you do not own, you may be able to file a claim for negligent security. The Glendale negligent security lawyers at Legal One Law Group, APC, APC have many years of experience securing compensation to cover the medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages suffered by victims of inadequate security throughout Southern California. We will fight to ensure you receive the financial help and justice you deserve.
What Is a Negligent Security Claim?
A negligent security claim is a type of lawsuit created to hold negligent property owners accountable when their failure to implement adequate security measures results in injuries caused by a violent crime. This can apply to crimes that take place on public property, government property, at someone’s home, in an apartment complex, and any other premises owned by an individual or company. Because property owners are required by law to ensure the safety of their visitors, they can be held accountable when something goes wrong if they don’t adequately protect their property.
Security measures property owners can take to protect their premises include:
- Employing bouncers or security guards
- Installing multiple accessible exits, including emergency exits
- Installing security cameras
- Installing adequate lighting and
- signs that lower the risk of a crime being committed
- Training staff to deal with security issues
If the property owner has not done any of the above or taken other measures to deter crime and someone is attacked and injured on their property, the victim can sue for compensation. A negligent security claim falls under civil law and may be filed instead of or in addition to any criminal charges against the perpetrator of the crime.
