Lawyers in Bensenville for Victims of Negligent Security on Private Property

The legal term "premises liability" is generally used in connection with cases in which a person was injured on someone else's property. Common examples of premises liability injuries include slip-and-fall accidents, trip-and-fall accidents, and dog bites. There are, however, other types of cases that fall under the category of premises liability. One that is often overlooked is negligent or inadequate security.

At Kaiser Hafezi Law in Bensenville, Illinois, our attorneys are well-versed in all facets of premises liability law, and we have handled many cases involving negligent security. Our lawyers have over 100 years of combined legal experience, and we know how devastating it can be to suffer an injury that should have been prevented. If you or someone you love suffered a physical injury or any type of financial loss as a result of security issues, our skilled team is ready to help you take action.

Counsel for Crime Victims in Park Ridge and Niles

All businesses and property owners are legally required to provide a level of security that prevents foreseeable criminal behavior on their property. If reasonable security measures are not implemented, the property owner or business could be liable for any damages that are sustained by guests on the property as a result. A negligent property owner or business could be held responsible for injuries and financial losses related to almost any kind of criminal activity on the property, including battery, robbery, sexual assault, and more.

The lawyers at Kaiser Hafezi Law realize that negligent security cases are often complicated because the level of required security under the law depends on a number of factors and is different from case to case. These factors include the history of criminal behavior on the property, the overall criminal activity in the area, and other considerations. A bar in a statistically dangerous neighborhood, for example, would be responsible for a higher level of security than would a clothing store in an area with much less crime.

There are many different types of security issues that could contribute to a guest being victimized by criminal violence. They include, but are not limited to:

  • Missing or broken locks
  • Non-existent or unmonitored video security systems
  • Poorly trained security staff
  • Hiring employees without adequate background checks
  • Faulty or broken alarm systems
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Poor crowd control, such as not removing violent or intoxicated individuals
  • Noncompliance with industry security standards for the specific property or business

Negligent security can cause problems for nearly any type of business or property, including hotels, apartment complexes, stores, restaurants, recreational facilities, and schools.
