Negligent Security Attorney

Obtain Legal Assistance from Our Connecticut Premises Liability Lawyer

When you enter a store, restaurant, hotel, or business office, the property owner or manager has an obligation to protect you from reasonable and foreseeable crimes and injuries. Unfortunately, many owners fail to take proper security measures, resulting in robberies, assaults, injuries, and even deaths.

If you have suffered a serious injury due to negligent security measures in Connecticut, property owners must be held liable. With the help of an experienced and skilled team of Connecticut premises liability lawyers, we can provide guidance throughout the entire legal process in order to recover the financial compensation you deserve.

Common Forms of Negligent Security

Premises liability is the legal term which means that the owner of the property will be held liable for specific crimes that occur on the premises. For example, if you are assaulted while going to a bar or nightclub, the owner of the property can be held responsible for the patron’s injuries due to the failure to take proper security measures. If a property owner understands that their premises could potentially be dangerous, he or she has a duty to ensure no visitors or guests are harmed.

Common ways that an owner can be held liable for negligent security include:

  • Inadequate security measures despite a prior history of crimes
  • Lack of security video cameras
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Incompetent or poorly trained or supervised security personnel
  • Lack of locks, fences, and other security barriers
  • Employment of individuals with criminal backgrounds
