Important Aspects Of Negligent Security Cases

Crime can occur anywhere, but there are some places where it is more likely, especially if the property owner was negligent about taking proper security measures. Negligent security incidents often happen in:

  • Gas stations
  • Parking lots and garages
  • Shopping malls
  • Motels and hotels
  • Apartment complexes

Lack of a security system, inadequate lighting, broken locks or poor design can create conditions that make these places extremely dangerous. If the property owner knew or should have known that the premises posed a danger to customers, guests and other visitors, he or she may be held liable for injuries that occur.

You or your loved one may need compensation for losses such as:

  • Medical bills
  • Stolen property
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages and benefits

Attorney Brian C. McCarthy is a lawyer prepared to aggressively pursue the full and fair compensation you deserve. With over 10 years of experience, he knows how to build strong cases for all premises liability claims, including negligent security matters.
