Premises Liability Attorneys With 50+ Years Of Experience
Negligent security claims can be made against owners of all types of property. Whether it is the owner of a night club, apartment building or shopping mall, he or she is expected to provide a safe environment for his or her visitors and customers. This is especially true in New York City, where a majority of the residents live in apartments owned by a proprietor. If a criminal enters the premises and injures a resident of the property in any way because there was not adequate security — or no security at all — present, the property owner could be held liable for negligent security.
Negligent security does not only refer to inadequate security personnel. Security can also be maintained through updated security cameras, alarm systems and protected access to the property. These are all measures property owners can and should take in order to secure their premises and protect those on their property from harm. Contact a New York City personal injury lawyer to find out how we can help you claim the compensation to which you are entitled. We can guide you through the process of filing a premises liability claim against the owner of the property for negligent security and provide the representation you need in order to come out of the claim successfully.

In situations where the property owner failed to provide sufficient security, an assaulted or injured victim is able to take civil action to obtain compensation from the owner for his or her negligence. This compensation is a different type of justice than that which is found through a criminal trial against the actual criminal. The victim should also be repaid for the pain he or she was put through and the expenses that resulted from the incident. A premises liability claim against the property owner for negligent security would be a means for the victim to obtain compensation for medical costs, lost wages and emotional losses associated with the incident. While the property owner did not commit the act, he or she failed in his or her responsibility to provide sufficient security to the victim and for that he or she can be held responsible.
At The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny, we understand the seriousness of the situation that led to your injuries. Whether you were injured during a bar fight that broke out because the security personnel failed to respond or you were attacked in your apartment building by a trespasser, you deserve to be repaid for the pain you experienced. You should not have to pay for something you did not ask for, and we want to make sure the person responsible is the one who does. Contact us today to learn more.
