Fresno Negligent Security Lawyer Helping Victims Recover Damages
Being hurt because of someone else’s negligence in providing adequate security can be frustrating. Many victims don’t know how much they can collect in damages or who is even at fault. The truth is that a business owner has a legal duty to provide proper security, such as security guards and security cameras, for the safety of those who come to their business. If a property owner provides inadequate security in a location with a history of crime, they can also be held responsible for your injuries under premises liability law.
While insurance companies may come to you offering money, they probably want you to take the small settlement and walk away. However, these settlements often fall far below what victims need to make a proper financial recovery from their injuries. Negligent security lawsuits, however, can help you collect compensation for the many damages caused by the incident, including lost wages, mental trauma, and emotional distress following the violent crime.
If you are a victim of a crime that occurred on a commercial property or because of a negligent property owner, you could be eligible for compensation. Contact our negligent security lawyers to learn how we can help you make a full financial recovery. Call (559) 702-5124 to schedule a free consultation and learn how we can help.
What is a Negligent Security Case?
Negligent security claims involve violent crimes committed on someone else’s property. These cases involve businesses and property owners who know their location has a history of criminal activity. Yet they failed to provide adequate security, door locks, adequate lighting, security guards, and other reasonable security measures.
This lack of appropriate security measures can result in various crimes, including:
- Armed robbery
- Sexual assault
- Head injuries
- Wrongful death
If you are suffering because of crimes committed in a location where the property owner failed to provide a safe environment, you have certain rights that must be protected. You should not go into this fight alone. You need negligent security attorneys who understand California law and can prove that your injuries occurred because the owner neglected to provide adequate security measures that would have kept you safe. Contact Nunes Law, Inc. immediately to learn how we can help you collect damages.
Where Do Negligent Security Violations Take Place?
Successful negligent security claims show that the crime occurred in high-crime areas with a history of criminal activity. This proves that the property owner knew or should have known they needed better security at their location.
Some locations where negligent security injuries might take place are:
- Shopping centers
- Apartment buildings
- Parking garages
- Parking lot
- Bars and restaurants
- Gas stations
- Public transit stations
- Grocery stores
- Sporting events
- Amusement parks
- Schools and universities
- Hospitals and nursing homes
Whether the location is publicly or privately owned, you have the right to feel safe because proper security measures are in place. It can be incredibly frustrating to suffer preventable harm because a property owner failed to install security cameras or other appropriate measures, even though they knew about prior incidents of crimes committed in the area.
If your injury occurred at an apartment complex, shopping center, parking garage, or other property, you could collect victims’ damages. Please contact our talented legal team to aggressively pursue justice and collect the compensation you deserve. You may even be able to prevent more people from being hurt by holding negligent property owners accountable. So call today!
What Damages Can I Recover in a Negligent Security Lawsuit?
If you suffered an injury because of inadequate security, such as inadequate lighting, the owner’s failure to provide a security guard or any other reason, you could recover monetary damages in a negligent security claim.
Many victims don’t realize the extent of their injuries at first. These traumatic experiences can cause devastating mental conditions like PTSD, depression, and anxiety. Severe mental and emotional suffering can prevent victims from enjoying their lives or gaining employment. They may lose their jobs, homes, and more. Opening a lawsuit due to the property owner’s failure to keep you safe can help you recover financially.
Some items that could be covered in a negligent security lawsuit include the following:
- Medical bills
- Doctors visits
- Hospital bills
- Physical therapy
- Ambulance charges
- Surgical procedures
- Lost wages
- Lost salaries
- Lost vacations and bonuses
- Reduced income-earning ability
- Wrongful death
- Emotional trauma
- Mental distress, including PTSD
