Negligent Security Claims

Our NYC Injury Attorneys are Tough & Ready to Fight for You

Any act of violence or theft against you is a violation of your basic rights. Such an action can have a lasting impact on your physical and emotional well-being. Property owners have a responsibility to provide basic security for visitors and residents on their property. When negligent security leads to an incident that results in an injury to you or a loved one, you may have the ability to pursue monetary damages from the property owner.

At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., our experienced attorneys have handled cases involving premises liability, slip-and-fall injuries, and negligent security for years, including incidents similar to yours. We are prepared to pursue the recovery that our clients deserve from the owners of office complexes, shopping malls, parking garages, schools, apartment complexes, or any facility where they have been injured due to negligent, or nonexistent, security. Year after year, we are one of the most successful firms in New York in terms of verdicts and settlements won for our clients.

Consequences of Negligent Security

When property owners fail to take proper measures to ensure the safety of individuals present, it may lead to visitors or residents being robbed, raped, assaulted, or otherwise harmed. While the assailants are the ones who actually caused the injuries, the property owners may be held liable for failing to prevent or warn against it.

Negligent security may involve:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Broken door locks
  • Lack of security cameras or security guards
  • No secure entry for apartment complexes
  • Insufficient surveillance
  • Lack of warning or notification about recent criminal activity

These cases are often complex. Having an experienced New York City personal injury lawyer on your side is important to achieve a successful result. We know how to investigate and handle these cases in order to give our clients the strongest chance at a favorable outcome and receiving the maximum compensation to which they are entitled.
