Security negligence is a type of premises liability claim that involves a property owner or manager failing to provide adequate security measures for visitors, customers or clients. Although it would be unreasonable to assume that every property owner should have extensive security in all parts of a building and the surrounding property grounds, there is a reasonable extent of security that should be provided. Our lawyer represents clients throughout Michigan who have been assaulted or attacked, or otherwise injured, as the result of security negligence.
The particular circumstances of your case will dictate whether you have grounds for a lawsuit and also what your case may be worth. It is therefore important to discuss the matter with a Michigan personal injury attorney who can answer your questions and address your concerns in order to conduct a complete evaluation of the matter.
For example, take a situation where a hotel security guard has fallen asleep while on duty. Had he been properly monitoring security cameras, he would have noticed that someone was being assaulted in the parking lot. However, he was unaware of the situation and a hotel guest therefore suffered serious injury. In a situation such as this, the injured guest may have grounds for a lawsuit against the hotel. Our law firm would be able to review the case to determine the best approach.
Negligent security can lead to assault, theft, robbery, and serious crimes such as rape or even murder. Make sure you seek justice if a negligent property owner caused you or someone you love to be injured due to security negligence of any kind.
