Inadequate Security Lawyer
There are many different buildings, facilities, and properties that attract criminal activity such as robbery, rape, assault, and battery. If you or a loved one was injured on someone else’s property as a result of the criminal acts of another person, you may be able to file a claim for inadequate or negligent security. All property and business owners have a responsibility to keep their premises safe for visitors, and this includes implementing proper security measures. If owners do not do everything in their power to keep the property free from dangerous conditions while also ensuring the premises are sufficiently secure to keep visitors safe from harm, they may be held liable. Inadequate security claims protect many people – including tenants from negligent landlords, workers from unsafe workplace conditions, visitors from poorly-maintained homes, and delivery personnel from unsafe homes. If a property is unsafe or did not have proper safety measures in place and you were harmed as a result, we encourage you to contact an attorney from Rad Law Firm today. We have offices conveniently located in Beverly Hills, CA and Austin, Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth, and Brownsville, TX and are prepared to fight for your rights.
Common Inadequate Security Scenarios
There are numerous locations that are prone to criminal activity when proper security measures are not in place, including apartment complexes, shopping malls, nightclubs, dormitories, sports arenas, and convenience stores. The owner and managers of these facilities are responsible for providing adequate security and ensuring these properties and establishments are safe for visitors. When they fail to do so, they may be met with an inadequate security claim due to the following:
- Faulty gates, locks, or doors
- Insufficient lighting in parking areas and common areas
- Broken security cameras
- Broken windows or fences
- Failing to employ a security guard when a reasonable owner would do so
- Improper maintenance of security measures, such as cameras, lights, and locks
If you have been the victim of a crime on another person’s property, you may have grounds for an inadequate security claim.
