​negligent security 

Individuals who are attacked or victimized on someone else’s property are protected by premises laws that mandate adequate security. Property owners, property managers, security companies, and public housing authorities can be responsible for ensuring a certain level of security and safety on their properties, relative to the known dangers in the area, and/or third parties causing injuries on the property. The key is usually being able to prove that the attack or injuries caused by a third party were foreseeable to those responsible for safety in the area.

If you have been the victim of an assault or a crime that occurred on another party’s property, and you have questions about the lack of security on the scene, reach out to our office and speak with one of our experienced lawyers. Since these types of incidents often occur on publicly-owned or municipal properties, there may be strict time limits to consider, and one of our lawyers can help explain these issues.
