Lack of Security Claims
Salisbury Premises Liability Attorney
Did you know that landowners have a legally binding duty to provide a safe
environment to those who enter onto their property? This includes providing
adequate security. When property owners fail to provide the security needed
to prevent injuries from occurring, they may be held accountable for the
resulting damages. Lack of security claims fall under the legal theory of
premises liability and if you have suffered an injury from a violent act on someone else’s
property, you may be able to claim monetary compensation.

Do I Have a Negligent Security Claim?
Typically, it must be shown that (1) the property owner knew a danger existed,
(2) failed to provide adequate security, (3) the negligent act led directly
to the altercation, and (4) the victim suffered specific damages. There
is no universal standard for the minimum amount of security that a property
or business owner is required to have and every case is looked at on an
individual basis. For example, a crowded bar will generally be required
to have different security measures in place than a hotel. If you have
questions about your situation, I can help you to understand the nature
of your claim as well as what you may expect in the case ahead.
Common factors in negligent security claims can include:
- The lack of adequate lighting
- No video surveillance equipment
- Broken doors, alarms, or locks
- No security guards were present
In order to seek compensation for your injuries, it is important to act
quickly as there may be a limited amount of time for to you take legal
action. In Maryland, victims who are filing a personal injury claim may
have as little as three years in which to fight for restitution. Missing
this deadline can result in your inability to claim compensation, no matter
how much evidence you possess.
