Crime remains a severe problem in many cities, and people who have been injured because security was not sufficient could face permanent life changes. Sadly, many of these instances may have been prevented if the person who was hurt was unable to enter the property where the incident occurred. Our well-versed attorneys at Tomeny | Best could help you understand your legal options for pursuing the maximum compensation for a claim when you are injured due to inadequate security.

When you believe that insufficient security led to a criminal attack that injured you or a loved one, you might be eligible to sue the property’s owner or manager for financial damages. A Baton Rouge negligent security lawyer at our firm could help you seek the compensation you need and deserve.

Understanding Negligent Security Claims

In most situations, people are not legally responsible for other people’s actions. However, there are some exceptions in cases involving crimes that occur due to inadequate property security. Although the person who carried out a crime bears full responsibility for a criminal assault, some fault also often lies with the property owner, manager, or landlord whose negligent security allowed a crime to take place.

Negligent security lawsuits allow people harmed by another person’s actions to pursue a legal claim for compensation from the property owner where the injury happened. Negligent security claims are a type of premises liability law. Premises liability law requires property owners to keep their property reasonably safe for visitors. As part of that duty, property owners must take reasonable security measures to protect lawful visitors and residents against foreseeable risks presented by third parties. Our compassionate Baton Rouge attorneys have a track record of successfully helping people obtain the compensation they deserve in many situations.

Performing an Investigation

Our skilled legal team could perform a detailed investigation of the building in Baton Rouge, where the incident occurred, to help determine whether the building had sufficient security or if negligence was involved. They could look for evidence proving that the property owner should have been aware of a foreseeable risk of a crime occurring. For example, if the property was in an area of high crime, the owner should have anticipated that danger could occur. The lawyers from Tomeny| Best could gather evidence proving that the attack could likely have been prevented if the property owner had taken reasonable security measures, such as installing extra locks.
