Inadequate Security Claims in NC
An Overview of Inadequate Security Cases
Simply put, property owners and building managers have a duty to make a reasonable effort to ensure the safety of their employees, patrons, and tenants. This includes having suitable staff, ensuring proper lighting, and ensuring the functionality of all locks on windows and doors on the premises. If these measures are not taken, a building owner can be held liable for any damages that a guest should suffer in the event that an assault, rape, or burglary should occur on their property. This responsibility scales depending on the surrounding crime rates and history of incidents.
Negligent security cases are commonly brought against the following establishments:
- Retail stores
- Apartment complexes
- Shopping malls
If it can be proven that a property owner could have prevented your injuries by employing the necessary security, you may be entitled to recover damages related to medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. Punitive damages can also be sought in cases where particularly egregious negligence is present. Since compensation will vary on a case-by-case basis, it is highly important that you consult with a lawyer from Roane Law Firm as soon as possible to determine your legal options and your eligible compensation.
