Negligent Security Lawyer, Harwood Heights
Premises liability law requires many property owners to maintain a safe property and to take care of foreseeable hazards before they end up hurting somebody; this includes the hazard of violent crime. If a public or private property is located in a known high-crime area or presents an attractive target to criminals for other reasons, the owner or manager of the property may be required to take reasonable measures to prevent crimes on the premises. Negligent security can exist in all kinds of properties, like apartments, hotels, college dorms, malls, bars, schools, and more. Negligence may even include terrorist attacks, identity theft, and cyber attacks.
A few common examples of negligent security include but are not limited to:
- Faulty security cameras
- Inadequate lighting
- Lack of fences, locks, and other security measures
- Employment of individuals with criminal backgrounds
- Improperly trained security staff
- Lack of security policies and protocols
You may be entitled to coverage of medical bills, lost wages, emotional distress, pain, and more, as a result of neglected security.
