Negligent Security / New York / Fighting for Your Safety and Rights

In New York, property owners are obligated to ensure their premises are safe from foreseeable harm, including criminal acts. When they fail, and you or a loved one suffer as a result, our law firm stands ready to hold them accountable. Specializing in negligent security cases, we understand the profound impact such incidents can have on your life.

Understanding Your Rights

Negligent security cases arise when individuals are harmed on someone else’s property due to insufficient security measures. Our focus areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Insufficient Lighting: Crucial in parking lots and walkways, poor lighting can lead to serious accidents.
  • Lack of Security Cameras: Essential for deterring and documenting criminal activity.
  • Inadequate Security Personnel: Especially critical in large or high-risk areas.
  • Unsecured Access Points: Properly secured entrances and exits are fundamental to safety.

Where Incidents Commonly Occur

  • Parking Lots: Often the scene of crimes due to inadequate monitoring and lighting.
  • Nightclubs: Overcrowding and insufficient security measures can lead to violent incidents.
  • Apartment Complexes: A lack of security features can make residents vulnerable to crime.
  • ATMs: Isolated or poorly lit ATMs pose significant risks to users.

Proving a Negligent Security Claim in New York

Success in a claim hinges on proving:

  1. Duty of Care: Establishing the property owner’s responsibility to ensure safety.
  2. Breach of Duty: Demonstrating failure to uphold safety standards.
  3. Causation: Linking the breach directly to your injury.
  4. Damages: Documenting the extent of your losses.

Compensation in Negligent Security Claims

Victims may be entitled to economic damages for medical bills, lost earnings, and more, as well as non-economic damages for pain and suffering. The specifics of each case will dictate the compensation available.

Filing Deadlines in New York

Immediate Steps Following an Incident
