New Jersey Inadequate Security Attorneys

When Negligent Security Leads to Injury

According to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports, violent crime has decreased throughout the United States in recent years. While this is a welcoming trend, it is no consolation to the victims of violent crime. Violent crime can cause untold physical and emotional trauma. If you were assaulted, raped or robbed in a parking lot, bar, store or apartment complex, you may feel as though you have no legal means to recover damages for your injuries. This is not necessarily the case.

Property owners have the obligation to make their premises safe. In many situations, proper security measures such as adequate lighting, security guards, security cameras or other measures would deter violent offenders from acting. When property owners fail to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of those on the property, they can be held liable. In every negligent security claim, it is important to have skilled legal counsel at your side.

At Britcher Leone, LLC, in Glen Rock and Parsippany, New Jersey, we have extensive experience representing individuals who have been harmed by another's negligent conduct. With a proven track record, we stand ready to protect your rights.

Achieving Just Results in Negligent Security Claims

Negligent security claims often turn on whether or not the property owner could reasonably foresee that violent crime could take place on his or her premises. Therefore, if there is a history of violent crime in the surrounding areas, the property owner must take steps to ensure the safety of others. Our law firm will make a comprehensive review of the property's history and determine exactly steps the property owner took to secure the property.

While we are establishing the liability of the property owner, we will also be working to establish your damages, including your medical expenses, lost income and other appropriate damages. Below is one example of our work representing victims of negligent security.

We represented a Hudson County man who suffered neck, back, pulmonary and psychiatric injuries as a result of being trapped in a smoke filled room. The landlord of our client's employer failed to protect against a threat to the property, resulting in his injuries. We recovered $1.2 million for our client's injuries.
