Connecticut Negligent Security Attorney

What Is Negligent Security?

Any public establishment owes visitors adequate security. If a lack of security results in injury, the injured party may file a negligent security claim against the property owner or manager. This is a type of personal injury claim that generally falls under premises liability—a complex area of law that requires the skill of an experienced and knowledgeable attorney.

When a person is attacked or assaulted in a public establishment, Carter Mario Law Firm can help determine if the crime could have been prevented with better security. Our Connecticut negligent security attorneys have extensive experience handling complex injury claims involving assault and other injuries resulting from inadequate security.

To learn more about how we can help you, call us at (203) 571-3858 or contact us online for a free, no-obligation consultation with our team.

Examples of Negligent Security

Negligent security can take many forms, from a building manager failing to install and maintain working security cameras to a security guard failing to adequately do his or her job.

Some examples of inadequate security include:

  • Insufficient lighting
  • Lack of security guards or cameras
  • Broken or missing locks/gates
  • Failure to respond to alerts
  • Lack of posted warnings

These and other instances of negligent security can have serious consequences for innocent victims. If you were assaulted or otherwise harmed on someone else’s property, and you believe negligent security may have played a role in the incident, contact our firm to discuss your potential right to financial recovery with one of our experienced Connecticut negligent security lawyers.

Proving Fault in a Negligent Security Case

To have grounds for a personal injury claim involving negligent security, there are several key elements you must be able to prove. As the plaintiff, or the person bringing the claim, the burden of proof is on you/your attorney to prove these things in your case.

In a negligent security case, you must be able to establish that:

  • The injury victim was lawfully on the property when injured
  • The property owner failed to ensure the safety of the public
  • The property owner should have known injury was possible
  • The victim suffered harm as a result of inadequate security

Often, this involves proving that you were not trespassing but were allowed to be on the property when the incident occurred. It also involves proving that the property owner/manager could reasonably be expected to know that you could come to harm, whether because of the property’s location in a high-crime area, because past assaults had occurred on or near the property before, or due to other reasons. You will also have to prove that the property owner/manager failed to take reasonable steps to prevent you from coming to harm (such as by hiring a security guard or installing gate locks) and that you sustained damages as a result.

Who Is Liable for Your Damages?

If you are assaulted or otherwise harmed due to negligent security, you could be left dealing with serious injuries, mounting medical bills, lost wages, and immense pain and suffering, among other damages. You should not have to face these things on your own. And, in fact, the law is on your side.

If negligent security was the cause of your injuries and resulting damages, you could have a claim against the property owner, the property manager, or another person/party responsible for ensuring the safety of the property. In some cases, you may have a claim directly against a security guard or a company that employs a security guard. You could also have a claim against a manufacturer if a defective security product, such as a camera system or motion-activated light, was defective.
