You deserve to know that wherever you are, reasonable security measures have been taken.
Whether you’re working at your office, shopping in a mall, or enjoying a sporting event, you deserve the peace of mind that all possible and reasonable safety measures have been taken, and that proper security procedures are being followed.
It is a property owner's responsibility to ensure that adequate security measures are being taken, ensuring the safety of all persons visiting or using their premises. When this responsibility is breached, visitors can be exposed to potentially dangerous situations, and often these “potential” situations become realities.
In instances where persons are injured, or even die, as a result of negligent security, property owners and developers may be liable for damages. Over the course of our firm's history, we have represented numerous victims and the families of victims who have been affected by negligent security and defective premises. Among our recoveries we received a $1.5 million award in a negligent security case where a police officer was killed in the line of duty.
It’s a sad reality but many of these cases could have been avoided with a property owner simply adhering to their duty of care.
