When Poor Security Leads To Serious Injuries
Property owners owe a duty of care to visitors they invite on their premises. This obligation includes maintaining adequate security and warning visitors of potential dangers. When they fail to do so, innocent people are left vulnerable to robbery, assault and other criminal activity. In some cases, the lack of proper security can result in severe injuries and even wrongful death.
At Jones | Raczkowski | Thomas in Phoenix, our attorneys have in-depth knowledge of Arizona negligent security laws and a proven record of success obtaining results for our clients. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury and you suspect inadequate security or some other form of negligence is to blame, we are here to stand up for your rights and guide you through the legal process.
Could This Injury Have Been Prevented?
Negligent security can result in traumatizing encounters, from robberies in casino parking lots to sexual assault in hotel rooms. In handling such cases, we carefully examine the facts to determine if the property owner should have foreseen the incident and if they took reasonable measures to prevent it.
Such measures may include:
- Ensuring locks are in working order
- Posting warning signs
- Providing adequate lighting
- Hiring private security
- Installing alarm systems and surveillance cameras
In many neighborhoods and buildings, common sense dictates crime is likely to occur when these measures are not in place. When property owners draw you to their premises but fail to provide for your safety, they must be held accountable for any losses you have suffered.
