Inadequate Security Accidents in New York City | What to Know

As you know, virtually anywhere you look in New York City, you will see a camera. These cameras are designed to deter criminal activity and capture it when it happens. Unfortunately, there are times where criminal activity occurs and it is not captured on film because there are no cameras where there should be. If you are someone who was injured due to inadequate security, either in the form of cameras or physical security personnel, you may have a valid personal injury claim. Continue reading and reach out to our New York City personal injury lawyer to learn more about how our firm can assist you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are some examples of inadequate security?

Inadequate security comes in many forms, and all of those can cause serious accidents. For example, at times, security guards aren’t present in locations where they should be, resulting in individuals being harmed by others. In other cases, cameras aren’t where they should be, allowing criminal activity, such as robbery, to occur. It is also considered negligent to improperly train security guards, making it so they cannot perform their jobs correctly. You may even have a case if you were hurt in a stairwell or elevator because security devices, such as cameras or alarms, were not working or present.

What should I do after being injured due to inadequate security?

Unfortunately, in many cases, when someone is injured due to inadequate security, they will not have access to footage of the accident as it happened, which is generally the best way to prove a personal injury claim. This is why, if you can, you should take every action possible to document your accident. For example, you should take pictures of the unsafe condition that caused your accident, you should ask anyone who witnessed your accident for their name, phone number, and email address, and you should call the police to the scene of the accident. You should also ensure that you receive medical attention as soon as possible, as your health is paramount and they can document the origin and extent of your injuries. Finally, you must retain a knowledgeable New York City personal injury lawyer who can file a premises liability claim on your behalf within the state’s statute of limitations, which is three years.
