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.
