Montgomery, Bucks, Chester & Delaware County Inadequate Security Attorney, Louis P. Lombardi II
Are you or a loved one the victim of a violent crime? Did you know that a crime victim may be able to bring a civil claim against the owner or manager of the property where the crime occurred? This legal action is in addition to any criminal proceedings against the assailant. It is also possible to bring this type of legal claim if the assailant’s identity is unknown.
Legal Claims Based on Inadequate Security
This type of legal claim is called a negligent security claim. It establishes property owner liability for injuries caused by a criminal act if the property owner or manager failed to take reasonable steps to keep the property safe and secure.
An Example of Negligent Security: A commercial store manager knows that several physical assaults have occurred in recent months in the store parking lot. Despite this knowledge, the store manager fails to take reasonable steps to protect the safety of customers. These steps might include installing security lights and security cameras and/or hiring security staff to patrol the parking lot. If the store manager fails to take any of these steps and another assault occurs, then the crime victim may be able to bring a legal claim against the store for injury due to negligent security.
Negligent Security Claims Require In-Depth Investigation
Negligent security and dangerous property claims are different from other types of personal injury cases. If you are a crime victim seeking information about your civil legal rights, you deserve to consult a lawyer who has experience handling negligent security lawsuits.
