Premises Liability & Negligent Security
While it is common knowledge that crime is rampant in our community, what is often not known is that shopping centers, stores, condominiums, restaurants, bars, and parking lots are all responsible for providing a safe premises and doing what they can to deter crime and provide reasonable security for people who come on their premises. When they don't provide adequate security and someone is attacked, robbed, raped, injured or killed, the victim or his family can bring a civil action against the property owner or Security Company for premises liability or negligent security. Usually these businesses have insurance that cover such incidents. You will need an experienced attorney to file a lawsuit on your behalf to make sure the insurance company covers all injuries and lost wages resulting from criminal attacks that would otherwise have been avoided through standard security measures.
