NYC Negligent Security Lawyer

New York Inadequate Security Attorney

Negligent security is an area of premises liability law covering injuries resulting from preventable assaults. Hotels, apartment owners, property managers, and bar owners have an obligation to ensure that they provide a safe environment for patrons, customers, tenants, guests, and other occupants and visitors. At Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., in New York City, we are committed to representing people who have suffered serious injuries as a result of inadequate security.

Inadequate security claims stem from a failure of a public or private entity to guard against preventable criminal acts. Negligent security claims often result from assaults, sexual assaults, rapes, shootings, and theft. These claims can seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering.

The difficulty in pursuing negligent security cases is demonstrating that a hotel, apartment owner, or other property owner was aware of a potential security danger and failed to take action. Some of the common steps businesses owners fail to take to protect people include:

  • Failure to staff security guards
  • Failure to install security cameras
  • Poor lighting in parking ramps, parking lots, or stairwells
  • Failure to properly secure entry doors and gates
  • Failing to properly screen security guards and other employees
  • Failure to install or maintain adequate intercoms and door locks

Our firm has more than forty years of experience helping people who have sustained injuries as a result of negligent security claims. We can help people obtain compensation for medical bills, lost income, and mental anguish. We work closely with our clients to understand the cause and consequences of their injuries. Then we work diligently to maximize the compensation they receive.
