What You Need to Know About Accidents Due to Inadequate Security in NYC

In New York City, we would like to think there are cameras virtually everywhere. Unfortunately, this is not the case, and there are many instances where people are injured due to inadequate security. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced New York City personal injury attorneys to learn more about inadequate security and how we can help you if you have been injured because of it. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are some examples of inadequate security?

There are various circumstances in which people may become seriously injured as a result of inadequate security. Some of the most common examples of inadequate security are as follows:

  • Not having security guards present.
  • Having security guards present, but failing to train them to ensure they can do their jobs properly.
  • Not having security cameras installed where there should be.
  • Having security cameras installed, but failing to maintain them to ensure that they are always properly functioning.
  • Having security cameras installed, but neglecting to have people monitoring them at all times.
  • Not having working alarms in elevators in case of an emergency.

What should I do if I am injured in an accident on someone else’s property?

If you are injured due to inadequate security, you must take the following steps to bolster your chances of winning a future personal injury claim:

  1. Call the police to the scene of the accident.
  2. Take pictures/videos of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident.
  3. Ask anyone who witnessed your accident for their name and phone number.
  4. Receive immediate medical treatment.
  5. Retain the services of an experienced New York City personal injury attorney who can work to obtain all additional evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof and win your personal injury claim.

What is the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in New York City?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York City is, under most circumstances, three years, which means that you will, generally, have three years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible. Do not make the mistake of waiting too long to sue, for if you do, there is a very good chance that you will be permanently barred from doing so. Our firm is ready to begin the claims process on your behalf today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
