Property owners and managers are required to provide adequate security to people who use their facilities. If you or a loved one has suffered from an assault in a building or private lot, you may be able to recover medical expenses and receive compensation for pain and suffering from the negligent property owner/manager.
Unsafe conditions can result from inadequate security with regard to lighting, surveillance cameras, fencing, exits or known criminal activity on the premises. An experienced Gerling Law attorney can determine if any of these negligent security issues contributed to your injuries.
Properties where inadequate security can be a problem:
- Hotels, motels, inns
- Shopping centers and malls
- College dorms
- Parking lots and parking garages
- Apartment complexes
- University campuses
Victims of attacks that have taken place in inadequately secured properties may be eligible to receive compensation from lost wages, past and future medical expenses, disability or lost earning capacity, mental distress, pain and suffering and potentially loss of consortium (loss of services and companionship to one's spouse).
