Negligent Security In New York

Negligent Security In New York

Attorneys at The Sanders Firm are well-versed in pursuing claims on behalf of the victims of negligent security in New York.  By law, all state property owners have a legal responsibility to keep visitors and residents safe through, at the very minimum, basic security.

By basic security, the law refers to working door locks, adequate lighting, secured entryways, and, if required, security alarms or surveillance systems. These requirements are designed to keep you safe – and to keep property owners responsible for the visitors who walk their premises.

When a lack of security cameras or broken door locks or otherwise unsafe conditions lead to injury, this is a form of premises liability. Victims of negligent security in New York have rights and may be eligible to seek monetary damages for their economic losses as well as their pain and suffering.

Liability for negligent security in New York


In New York, property owners, operators and managers can be held liable for the consequences of their lax security. Every year, victims of negligent security in New York and around the country are awarded millions in settlements and jury verdicts to compensate for their injuries.
