Negligent Security Lawyer in NYC

Owners and managers of apartment buildings, office buildings, parking lots, shopping centers, stadiums, and other properties owe a duty of care to residents, workers, or members of the general public who use these facilities. Lack of proper security is an example of negligence on the part of people and organizations responsible for the safety of customers, renters, and others.

Examples of indefensible lack of security include situations such as the following:

  • Residents of an apartment building repeatedly complain to landlords about possibly dangerous people in lobbies — and landlords do not take action.
  • There are no security guards where there should be.
  • There are no security cameras providing surveillance where there should be.
  • There is no working alarm in an elevator.
  • There are no security guards in an area where alcohol is served and intoxication is a recognized risk to public safety.
  • There are no working door locks for entryways of apartment buildings, thus allowing easy entrance by robbers.

These scenarios go beyond inadequate or negligent security — in many cases, there are in fact no reasonable security provisions. All too often, we at The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny hear stories like these regarding multiple-dwelling units in impoverished neighborhoods. Low incomes are not a valid excuse for landlords to omit essential security provisions. We are prepared to hold landowners responsible for negligence of this type.
