Have You Been a Victim of Negligent Security?
In New York, premises liability covers all aspects of a potentially dangerous environment that results in personal injury or wrongful death. A part of this law includes the legal responsibility of business and property owners to maintain adequate security measures, ensuring their premises are safe for the general public. Unfortunately, innocent people suffer harm or are victims of crime that could have been prevented if adequate security had been put in place.
Property owners and merchants may be held liable if they fail to secure their premises from possible assailants or otherwise fail to maintain proper security. When serious injury or damage results, it’s advisable to contact a skilled New York negligent security lawyer to ensure your claim is handled with the utmost attention and care.
