Holding Negligent Security Accountable For Injuries
Most people understand the concept of a slip-and-fall accident. If a property owner fails to keep his or her property safe and one of his or her patrons is injured as a result, the property owner is responsible. However, many people do not realize that owners must also keep their visitors secure.
Who Is Responsible?
Owners of bars, nightclubs, and other properties in areas with high incidences of violence have a responsibility to take measures for ensuring the safety of their patrons. If they fail to do so and someone is hurt in a violent attack such as an assault or a robbery, the property owner can be held accountable.

Holding Property Owners Accountable For Inadequate Security Measures
We will build your case by identifying where security was lacking. There are clear steps that property owners can take to create a safer environment for their patrons, including:
- Installation of security lighting
- Installation of security fencing
- Installation of security cameras
- Installation of high-quality door locks (hotels, motels, and apartments)
- Hiring security staff
We also factor in where the incident took place. Locations that could merit heightened security measures include:
- Shopping malls and centers
- Parking ramps and lots
- Hotels and motels
- Apartment buildings
- Bars and nightclubs
These are all locations where property owners should be considering potential dangers to patrons and actively taking measures to protect them. When property owners fail to provide adequate security, we hold them accountable.
