Negligent Security and Premises Liability

Property owners should be aware of the foreseeable risk of assaults on their premises and should take steps to secure the safety of their guests. Examples of those steps include:

  • Installing lights in parking lots, hallways and other areas where attacks may occur
  • Installing video cameras as a deterrent to crime
  • Hiring private security guards or asking local police to make increase patrols
  • Installing deadbolt locks on doors
  • Installing locks on windows

Our lawyers are dedicated to helping our clients obtain the compensation they need and deserve for assaults that occur on commercial properties. Our goal is not only to compensate the victims but also to help prevent similar attacks on other people.
