Did You Sustain Injuries After An Attack On A Property With Lax Security Measures?

The world is anything but a safe place today. There are plenty of stories in the headlines each and every day about muggings, shootings, stabbings, and more. They happen in public places, homes, and even commercial properties. When the latter is concerned, sometimes, lax security practices allow the events to unfold. Businesses have an obligation to keep their workers and clients safe and free of harm.

However, if they don't take precautions, attacks can occur that lead to injuries and sometimes even death. For the purposes of this post, the article is going to focus on damages. Surveillance cameras, security guards, alarm systems, and access control could be just what the doctor ordered for preventing such incidents. Yet, many organizations fail to outfit their premises with these things. In turn, after various attacks, some victims end up with...

• Traumatic Brain Injury
• Deep Lacerations And Puncture Wounds
• Gunshot Wounds
• Fractures And Broken Bones

The Recovery Process Can Be Quite Expensive

Between ambulance rides, hospital stays, surgeries, follow up doctor appointments, and medications, it can be challenging for victims to pay their healthcare bills. There may be months and months of physical therapy required as well. Not to mention, the person could need counseling to overcome the event emotionally. Nothing about the situation is fair, especially considering the commercial property owner could have taken steps to keep attackers at bay.

Luckily, there is something persons can do to offset these costs. They can hire a personal injury lawyer to fight on their behalf for compensation. Our attorneys have over 150 years of combined legal experience. They give each client the personal attention that they deserve and will even meet them at their home or the hospital if need be.

What Must Be Proven In A Negligent Security Case?

For one of these claims to be successful, the lawyer must show that the security was not adequate for the property or event. Additionally, they have to prove that the lack of security caused the accident. Our team has a variety of tools at its disposal for accomplishing these tasks. Sometimes, they obtain surveillance cameras footage, while on other occasions, they may look into incidents that happened in the past on the property. The attorney will collect witness statements and police reports as well. Also, they may bring in various professionals in different fields to make the case as strong as possible.

Going It Alone Could Be A Recipe For Disaster

Many times, commercial property representatives will offer low ball settlements in the beginning. If a person doesn't know any better or does not have legal representation by their side, they may accept the amount only to discover that it won't cover their expenses. Then again, in other instances, the property owners might be lawyered up. The attorneys will pull out all the stops to discredit the claim. They could even go as far as to make it look like the victim was at fault.

So, don't get taken advantage of or have your reputation thrown in the mud. Instead, put a trustworthy firm in your corner to fight for what is right and just. The action and effort will be well worth it in the end.


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
