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 & Sanders Attorneys at Law today. We can help determine whether inadequate security may have contributed to the crime and explore your legal options.

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
