Negligent Security

Robbed or Assaulted on Someone Else’s Property? Call a Fierce New York Negligent Security Attorney Today

When we are away from home, whether traveling, doing errands or meeting friends for dinner, the last thing we expect is to become a victim of a mugging, robbery, assault and battery, or sexual assault. But these crimes happen in New York too often, and especially at night. The perpetrator who attacked you may not be the only negligent party associated with your ordeal. The property owner where the crime took place may also be at fault due to poor security.

Premises liability cases often stem from negligent security, causing everything from violent assault injuries and robbery to slip and fall and electrocution accidents to unfenced swimming pool drownings.

Negligent security exists in countless types of situations and locations, including:

  • Shopping centers
  • Strip malls
  • Hotels and motels
  • Restaurants and cafes
  • Bars, pubs and taverns
  • Theaters and arenas
  • Sports stadiums arenas
  • Public park paths
  • Parking lots
  • Sidewalks
  • Stairways and landings
  • Subway platforms
  • Train stations
  • Bus stops
  • Ferry docks
  • On public transportation
  • Doorways
  • Lobbies
  • Municipal buildings
  • Office buildings
  • Airports
  • Elevators

Bad Security Could Be the Reason You Were Attacked—Let Us Fight For Your Justice!

Inadequate security takes many forms:

  • Low lighting or broken light bulbs
  • Defective door locks or unlocked building entrances
  • No security cameras
  • Broken surveillance cameras
  • Dark or poorly lit parking lots
  • Security guard asleep
  • Not enough security guards
  • Poorly trained security guards
  • Selling alcohol to intoxicated patrons who later assault someone
  • No warning signage in dangerous conditions, such as “Live Wires”
  • Failure to rope off or otherwise denote a hazardous area within a building, such as “Wet Floor”
  • Ignoring a pattern of violence in specific areas, despite complaints by tenants and neighbors
  • No fencing or insufficient fencing around swimming pools, to prevent child drowning
