Security Negligence and Failure to Protect
Most lawsuits for inadequate security involve apartments and businesses. Premises liability laws can also cover homes, motels, clubs, shopping centers, and just about any other building open to the general public.
Examples of negligent security include a landlord's failure to comply with laws requiring security devices such as window or door locks; failure to provide security guards at a known dangerous location to which the public is invited; failure to protect against dangerous individuals known to be on the premises; and failure to do background checks on predatory employees. Other examples of negligent security include failure to have adequate lighting as well as improper placement and maintenance of shrubbery and sight limitations which provide hiding places for robbers to conceal themselves including shopping centers office buildings, drive-in bank facilities as well ATM machines. Victims of negligent security include individuals who have been raped, assaulted, shot, stabbed, or have sustained other injuries or death.
Failure to Provide Adequate Security
To receive compensation for your pain and suffering, your lawyer must prove that the property owner owed you a duty of care, or that he or she should have known that there was potential for crime on the premises; failed to provide adequate security; and that the failure to provide security was a direct cause of your injury or damages. Attorney Samuel Spatzer recovers damages for victims of negligent security by carefully planning for their trial. Mr. Spatzer utilizes expert testimony to show deficiencies in the design of premises, inadequacy of lighting, and insufficiencies in maintenance or security procedures.
