Were You Attacked Because Of Negligent Security?

Property owners in New York are required by law to take reasonable measures to ensure the safety of people who visit their property for legal purposes. This includes the obligation to repair or remove physical hazards that could injure patrons, tenants or others. Premises liability laws also require property owners to implement basic security measures that help prevent criminal attacks and assaults.

Terms such as "basic" and "adequate" security are subject to interpretation based on the specific circumstances of your attack. You need a lawyer who will lead a thorough investigation and carefully analyze all available evidence and witness testimony. A few of many scenarios that may enable you to recover compensation from a negligent property owner include:

  • A shooting or stabbing in a nightclub where criminal activity is a known problem but there are no metal detectors at entry points and security personnel fail to intervene
  • An assault occurring in a commercial establishment located in a high-crime area but lacking sufficient surveillance, lighting and alarms to deter such attacks
  • An attack in your apartment, flat or other rental property enabled by broken locks or other serious security risks that the property owner/landlord knew about but did not address
