Hotels, apartment owners, property managers, bar owners and other owners and operators of premises have an obligation to ensure that they provide a safe environment for patrons, customers, tenants, guests, and other occupants and visitors. If the environment is not safe and someone is assaulted, negligent security could be the charge.

Negligent Security? Here's What Can Happen.
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.
What Does 'Inadequate Security' Mean?
In pursuing negligent security cases, we seek to demonstrate 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 business 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 45 years of experience helping people who have sustained serious injuries. We can help people obtain compensation in negligent security claims 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.
