Inadequate security and premises liability cases

Premises liability cases can involve a host of different things, one of which is inadequate security. Not many people realize that this issue is a common one in the premises liability realm and that it is a serious problem. Property owners are legally required to provide their guests with adequate security.

What it all boils down to is property owners providing their guests with the proper security to keep them safe, even if that means keeping them safe from outside harm caused by outsiders. The various forms of inadequate security include negligent security, lack of security and improper security.

Compensation you could receive for suffering an injury due to the lack of security on someone’s property includes emotional stress, pain and suffering and the medical bills that stem from your injuries.

The following locations are common places where inadequate security can occur:

  • Hotels
  • Motels
  • Inns
  • Parking lots
  • Office buildings
  • Stores
  • Restaurants
  • Apartment buildings
  • Campus housing
  • ATM machines and banks
  • Parking ramps
  • Private residences

It is possible that a lawsuit can be filed for inadequate security if the property owner knew of potential crime hazards and still did not provide the right amount of security. It’s also possible if the property owner knew about the lack of security, but decided to ignore the issue.

Some issues that lead to inadequate security include the following:

  • Lack of lighting
  • Lack of background checks on employees
  • Lack of security guards
  • Poorly working locks on doors
  • Lack of security cameras

If you or a loved one has been injured on another’s property due to inadequate security, contact our firm to discuss the case and find out how you can recover damages for the injuries suffered in New York.
