Cheering on your favorite team at the local stadium, having a night out on the town, a relaxing weekend get-away at a hotel or even a simple trip to the mall can quickly turn sour in the event of an injury— physical or emotional—as a result of negligent security. If you are injured in a third-party incident on a property that is not your own, you may be able to hold the property owner liable for your injury with a claim of negligent security and premises liability.
Injured on Another’s Property?
As an injured individual, you have the right to file a negligent security claim on the grounds that property and land owners must be able to provide reasonable security measures in an effort to protect others from crimes or acts of negligence committed on the premises by someone who is unconnected to the facility. A negligent security case is filed when evidence shows that an act could have been prevented if the correct security measures and protocols were taken. Incidents can happen at any time and any place, and it is up to the premise owner to keep people safe. The following are the types of properties where people can be injured due to inadequate security by the building owner:
- Malls/Shopping Centers
- Parking Garages
- Apartment building/complexes
Determining if you have a valid negligent security claim or premises liability claim depends on different variables surrounding the incident that the experienced attorneys at GPW can help to evaluate. If you have sustained injuries at a hotel, restaurant, parking lot, school, mall or in some other building where you were entitled to be, you may be entitled to compensation.
