Seeking Damages for Property Owners’ Failure to Take Appropriate Security Measures.
When property owners make their premises accessible to large numbers of people, they have some level of responsibility for the safety of their guests and tenants. Depending on the danger of assaults and other violent crimes, security measures may be required.
When property owners negligently fail to hire security guards, install alarms or take other measures, they can be held legally accountable for the consequences of violent crimes.
Property owners that may be liable for negligent security include but are not limited to:
- Retail stores
- Malls and shopping centers
- Bars and restaurants
- Banks and credit unions
- Apartment buildings
- Hotels and motels
Property owners do not have an absolute responsibility to prevent all assaults, rapes and murders on their premises. That is why it is important to hire an attorney who will carefully analyze the circumstances of your incident in order to make out a case for compensation.
The lawyers at our firm are respected throughout the New York area and nationwide for their dedication to helping injured people recover money damages from property owners through negligent security claims.
