Negligent security law protects the rights of victims who are injured due to violent or criminal acts taking place on someone else’s property. Personal injury claims stemming from negligent security fall under premises liability because it is the duty of landowners to ensure their properties are reasonably safe. When they fail to do so and you suffer an assault or injury as a result, you have a right to hold them accountable and seek compensation for all of your damages.
The negligent security attorneys at The Cochran Firm DC are dedicated to helping victims get the compensation they deserve in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia. We will investigate the circumstances that led to your injuries and hold the negligent party responsible for your suffering.
Most negligent security claims are filed against businesses and apartment managers. However, these claims can also be filed against homeowners and the owners and managers of shopping complexes, hotels, night clubs, restaurants, bars, and any other property open to the general public.
Common reasons to file a negligent security claim include:
Sadly, these and other examples of negligent security can result in serious crimes such as armed robbery, theft, sexual assault, and battery.
