Negligent Security

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.

Were you injured due to negligent security on someone else's property? Our attorneys are here to help. Give us a call at (818) 446-2009 or contact us online today.

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
  • 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.

What Should I Do If Attacked on Someone’s Property?

There are two important things to focus on if you are injured due to negligent security: your safety and accident liability. In any premises liability claim, which negligent security falls under, you must be able to prove that someone is responsible for your injuries.

Several parties may be liable, such as:

  • The property owner
  • A property manager
  • And a security company

This makes the process of requesting and receiving compensation more complicated.

To best protect yourself and your claim, do the following as soon as possible:

  • Get to a safe place as soon as possible
  • Call 911 and file a report with the police
  • Seek medical attention
  • Contact a local and experienced negligence security lawyer

The sooner you take care of the above, the easier it will be for the police and your attorney to collect evidence that will back up your claim and better set you up to receive the compensation and medical treatment you need.
