NYC Inadequate Security Lawyers

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

There are many places that require adequate security in order to protect innocent people from crimes or injuries. One example is an apartment building: this can be an ideal place for crime when the landlord doesn’t fulfill duties necessary to protect tenants and visitors. Safety features that are inadequate, broken or missing may lead to assaults or other violent crimes. When landlords fail to have sufficient, working security features in their buildings and on their premises, they may be held liable for the harm that results from the inadequacy of security measures.

New York law requires a landlord to take reasonable steps to protect tenants from the criminal conduct of third parties, when the crime is foreseeable. This standard leaves a lot of room for debate, as landlords and tenants often argue about the if the crime was “foreseeable” and whether “reasonable steps” were taken.

Factors That Can Be Involved in Inadequate Security

Businesses and property owners in New York have a duty to assess the potential for criminal activity on their premises, and then take reasonable steps to prevent it. The type of security measures taken may be enough for one location might but might be inadequate for an area with a higher risk of violent crime.

A premises or area that has a history of violent crime must take action for enhanced protection. Places where crowds gather and high traffic areas also require certain safety measures and protection.

The most common locations involving inadequate security include:

  • Apartment buildings
  • Parking lots
  • Parking garages
  • Office buildings
  • Bars, clubs, and restaurants
  • Stores and shopping centers
  • Theaters and sports facilities
  • Schools and colleges
  • Daycare centers
  • Hospitals and nursing homes
  • Parks and amusement parks
  • Airports, train stations, bus stations, and other public transportation facilities
  • ATMs

A significant contributing factor in causing/allowing these crimes to occur is improper maintenance of properties by owners or managing agents, which creates unsafe situations. This negligence can result in unnecessary harm to innocent victims.

Examples of providing inadequate security include:

  • Broken or missing locks
  • Insufficient lighting
  • No alarms
  • No camera surveillance
  • No security guards or improperly trained security guards
  • Badly secured entrances/exits
  • Failure to properly screen visitors/employees
  • Failure to monitor security systems/surveillance systems
  • No signs to warn about known hazards
  • Failure to remove intoxicated or violent patrons/customers/guests

Inadequate security falls under the category of premises liability. Because violent crimes can happen pretty much anywhere, it is possible for inadequate security to play a role in an incident at practically any type of facility. The property owners of homes or any businesses, including rental properties, hotels, apartments, clubs, and shopping centers are responsible for the safety of any persons on the property and any events that occur on the property. The top-rated and successful lawyers at Raiser & Kenniff, PC, will provide you with quality legal information and advice concerning any factor of your inadequate security case.

When a property owner knowingly provides inadequate security, he/she is putting many people at risk for preventable repercussions to employees, customers, and any other visitors on the property.

The most common repercussions resulting from inadequate security include:

• Mugging
• Assault
• Rape
• Kidnapping
• Abduction
• Stabbing
• Sexual assault
• Death
• PTSD and other psychological damage
• Any other preventable injury or accident

Additionally, some survivors of an attack are unable to work, or have diminished earnings from the aftermath of the event.

New York Inadequate Security Lawsuits

Landlords, business owners, and other property owners have a duty to take reasonable steps to prevent crimes from happening on their premises. They must protect customers, tenants, employees, visitors and others on the property from reasonable and foreseeable criminal acts of third parties.

If a New York property owner fails to provide adequate security, the door is open for innocent people to fall victim to crimes such as rape, sexual assault, armed robbery, assault and battery, and even murder. Even though the property owner did not commit the crime, they could still be held liable for civil damages if it is shown that they did not meet their legal obligation to take reasonable measures to prevent criminal activity.

If someone suffers a personal injury because a property owner or business operator failed to provide adequate security, the injured person or his or her survivors could have an inadequate security case against the negligent property owner or business operator. It is imperative that you talk to a qualified New York Inadequate Security Lawyer as soon as possible after the incident so the lawyer can evaluate your case and determine if an investigation is necessary.

You could be entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical bills, rehabilitation costs, psychological damage, pain or suffering, and more if it is shown that the property owner or business was negligent in failing to provide adequate security. If you or anyone you know is the victim of assault and bodily or psychological injury as a result of negligence on the part of the property owner, a New York Inadequate Security Lawyer can help you bring the responsible party to justice.

How Inadequate Security is Proven

Property owners are required to provide their buildings with proper lighting, safe locks, and other necessary and reasonable safety features. When a property owner fails to provide a safe environment, they may be held accountable for the crimes that are committed on that property. We have handled many types of premises liability cases, including those of victims who have been seriously injured as the result of the business owners negligence in the area of security. We have fought hard and won against big name companies. We take each case seriously and focus on all the details involved in the matters. Each client gets the best quality in service. Therefore, you can be assured that putting your inadequate security case in our hands will be in your favor.

Raiser & Kenniff’s expert lawyers will carefully assess your case and determine who is responsible for the conditions that led to your pain and/or suffering. There are short Statutes of Limitations within which to commence a lawsuit to protect your rights, so it is important to act as soon as possible!

If you or someone you love was the victim of a crime due to inadequate security measures, calling an experienced New York Inadequate Security Lawyer at Raiser & Kenniff, PC, for a consultation (see bottom of article for contact info) will start the legal process that will get you the compensation you deserve.

Why You Need to Start On Your Case ASAP

It is very important to act quickly. If you have been injured due to inadequate security of a publicly owned building that is owned, operated, managed or funded by the city, such as

  • a city (New York City Housing Authority),
  • a school (Department of Education),
  • a county (New York City Health & Hospitals Corporation),
  • or a state or federal government –

a Notice of Claim is usually required. You may need a legal document that explains your claim that must usually be prepared by your lawyer and served on the municipality within 90 days of injury (sometimes even sooner). Some private entities receive federal funds, and a claim must be filed with the federal government. Because wherever possible records must be obtained and reviewed before the Notice of Claim is prepared and filed, time is of the essence.
