Inadequate Security Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Keeping a building or property reasonably safe for guests is the responsibility of all property owners. For business and commercial property owners, this can include providing adequate security to prevent or deter criminal activity. Shootings, assaults, attacks and rapes that occur at commercial properties are less likely to occur when there are security measures in place. If a guest, tenant or customer on a commercial property is injured due to inadequate security, the property owner may be financially liable for damages.

What is Inadequate Security?

The amount of security needed at a business or commercial property to maintain safety varies. Property and business owners are expected to gauge the risk and determine the amount of security that is needed to provide reasonable safety for those on their property. Property in low crime areas or businesses without a history of criminal activity may need less security. If there is a history of crime, security measures may need to be enhanced. Some components of security include:

  • Security cameras
  • Well-lit parking lots, alleys, stairwells and hallways
  • Security guards or patrols
  • Locked entrances and gates
  • Well-maintained buildings (fixing broken locks, windows and other security factors)

If a property owner knows crimes have been committed in the past, yet does not provide adequate security to prevent future crimes, he/she may be liable for violent crimes. If security measures are in place, but not maintained, this can also lead to violent crimes and injuries. Each case of injury caused by lack of security must be evaluated individually to determine whether the property owner maintained a safe environment and whether they are liable.

If you were seriously injured or lost a loved one in a violent crime perpetrated at a business or public facility, contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law today. We can help determine whether inadequate security may have contributed to the crime and explore your legal options.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
