Most establishments and venues take security measures to ensure the safety of their patrons. Unfortunately, sometimes inadequate security can lead to very serious injuries. If you’ve been hurt in such a situation, you should strongly consider hiring a knowledgeable Manhattan personal injury attorney who can fight for the compensation you deserve. Our firm is on your side, and we are prepared to guide you through every step of the claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What does inadequate security mean?
There are various ways in which security can be inadequate. For example, in certain cases, security guards are required at certain venues or in certain stores that do not have them present. This can lead to crimes occurring and serious injury. Further, inadequately trained security guards or understaffing of security guards can also lead to serious injuries. In other cases, missing security cameras or defective alarms can also lead to injuries. If you’ve been harmed because of inadequate security, you need a legal team who can effectively fight for the compensation you deserve and need to get back on your feet again.
What should I do if I’m hurt because of inadequate security?
If you’re hurt because of inadequate security, you will have to document the incident. Since there is no surveillance footage of your accident, you should ask witnesses for their contact information, take pictures of the accident/its aftermath, seek medical treatment immediately, call the police, and hire a knowledgeable Manhattan personal injury attorney who can fight for the compensation you need.
How long will I have to file a personal injury claim in New York?
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is, typically, three years, which means that in most cases, you will only have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the liable party. If you wait any longer than three years, you will lose your right to sue. Our legal team is prepared to begin the claims process on your behalf at once.
