Negligent Security Case

Personal Injury Attorney Ben Schwartz gives an overview of a negligent security case.

Hi, I’m Attorney Ben Schwartz,

Today I am going to give you a quick overview of a negligent security case. In my law firm, Schwartz and Schwartz our attorneys handle negligent security, personal injury, and wrongful death cases in the Mid-Atlantic Region. The states where we are currently accepting these cases are Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.

A negligent security case. What is a negligent security case? Here is the idea. If you were on-premise, let’s say you were at a store, or you are at a hotel, or a professional office, and a crime occurs, for example, maybe a robbery occurs. In the course of the robbery, you are shot. You might have the right to sue the robber, and you might want to sue the robber. Let’s say the robber gets caught, he goes to jail for a very long time. You can file a lawsuit against him. You are never going to get any money out of it because he doesn’t have any money. He doesn’t have any insurance, that is why he was robbing the place in the first place.

You can also have a lawsuit or legal claim against the property owner, or the store, or the hotel where this occurred. The reason why you might have a legal claim or a lawsuit case is that that business had a responsibility to you to provide a safe place, a safe premise for you to go and spend your money and transact your business. If they didn’t take responsible measures to ensure a safe place, reasonable measures to discourage crime and criminals coming around, and as a result, there was a criminal act and you were injured or your family member was killed, then that may be a negligent security case. Now, how do you know if you have got a negligent security case? Well, you go to a lawyer that handles negligent security lawsuit cases in your jurisdiction and you ask them to evaluate the claim.

So, when we look at a potential negligent security case, what are we looking for? The first question we want to know is, is this a high crime area? A low-crime area? An intermediate crime area? What would a business reasonably be expected to do in this type of area? Would a reasonable business have had roving security guards? Maybe, maybe not, it depends. Would a reasonable business have closed-circuit television cameras? Maybe, maybe not, we don’t know. We have to evaluate what other measures they could have taken. Could there have been a panic button? Could there have been some other measures, for example, signage? Could there have been some other measures, say locked exterior doors that would keep the bad guys out? What other measures could reasonably be taken if the landowner or the business was on the ball in trying to provide a safe place for their customers? These are the questions we are going to ask to evaluate whether there may be a negligent security lawsuit case that is viable.

So, I think I have now given you a quick overview, a quick thumbnail sketch of what is a negligent security lawsuit case. If you have questions about negligent security cases, whether you are a crime victim or an attorney who is handling a negligent security case and you have questions about what is going on, how do you know you have a case, and how do you pursue the case feel free to get in touch with me. You can send me an email. You can also complete the contact us page on our website. When you click submit, it will come to me and my law firm.

Thanks for watching!
