Lack of Security Cameras

Lack of Security Cameras

Were You Put in Danger by a Lack of Surveillance?

Visible security cameras have proven benefits in protecting people from being attacked in public places. Studies have suggested that the installation of cameras in public places deters people from committing serious crimes such as:

  • Robbery
  • Assault
  • Sexual assault

If you have been attacked on someone else’s property where security cameras were not installed or positioned properly, you may be entitled to compensation. At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., our attorneys are experienced in helping clients pursue claims against property owners for inadequate surveillance and other negligent security measures.

Our lead New York City personal injury attorney, David Perecman, has more than 30 years of experience. Based in Manhattan, we serve clients in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island, Long Island, and Westchester.

Did the Property Owner Take Adequate Safety Measures?

Under New York premises liability law, every property owner is expected to take reasonable measures to protect members of the public from harm. For hotels, commercial buildings, and certain other properties, this principle may require the proper installation and placement of working security cameras.

Every property owner in New York is aware of the crime rate and aware that if areas are left insecure, criminals may take the opportunity to prey on innocent people. The need for security cameras is particularly important in areas that are not directly supervised but easy for members of the public to access. Of course, surveillance is only one of several security measures that property owners can and should take in these situations.
