Attacked Or Injured By A Criminal?

Get Compensation For An Injury Resulting From Inadequate Security Or Assault

Many property owners have a duty to protect and provide a reasonable level of security to all visitors at such properties as:

  • Shopping centers, malls and retail stores
  • Grocery stores and liquor stores
  • Apartment complexes
  • Hotels
  • Restaurants and bars
  • Nightclubs
  • Government buildings
  • Schools
  • Nursing homes
  • Hospitals

Injuries and accidents caused by inadequate security include instances in which security guards were not trained well enough or were absent, adequate security deterrents (e.g., cameras and metal detectors) were not in place or functioning properly, security response time was poor or there was no ability to sound an emergency alarm.

Property owners have a duty to protect patrons, but you must file a claim in time if you wish to take legal action.

The statute of limitations deadline approaches quicker than you think:

  • The statute of limitations for claims against private property owners is two years.
  • Injured parties wishing to file a claim against a public or government entity must notify the entity of the intent to file a claim within 90 days, in some cases.
