Have you or a loved one been attacked or been the victim of a property crime that could have been prevented by adequate security? If so, you need to consult with a negligent security attorney.
Property owners have a responsibility to take reasonable measures to make their property safe from crime. In many cases, criminal attacks and your pain and suffering would never have happened if the people charged with protecting you had done their jobs. If you have been a victim of a crime, there are steps you can take to be compensated for the losses you have suffered.
Property owner responsibility
Places, similar to people, have personalities and characteristics. Properties have routine or frequent activities that facilitate different types of crimes. A property’s character can actually encourage crime, particularly predatory crimes such as murder, rape, robbery, carjacking and other forms of stranger violence. These types of crimes can be very place specific. The property owner has a duty to know the character of the property and take reasonable steps to keep crime off of the property and the public safe.
If you think you are a victim of this kind of negligent security, consult with a negligent security attorney as soon as possible.
Experienced negligent security attorneys know how to analyze the character of a property and whether it facilitates crime. Crime is not always random and often can be predicted and deterred with adequate security measures. An experienced negligent security attorney knows can help you collect the settlement you need to recover your losses and hold property owners responsible for keeping their property safe.
You deserve to feel safe in public places.
Owners are required to provide this security. If you are a victim of negligence, failing to hold those responsible accountable puts the emotional, physical and financial losses and innocent victims and continues to put others at risk.
If you or someone you know has been affected or victimized by negligent security, please contact the attorneys at The Law Office of Sara J. Powell. We seek justice for victims through compensation and rights advocacy.
