Highly Skilled North Dakota Negligent Security Lawyers Protecting Your Rights
Helping victims impacted by inadequate security measures
Safety and security: that is what you hope to feel in your apartment building, workplace, and other places you visit on a daily basis. In fact, many employers and apartment building owners have measures in place that are designed to do just that – to keep you safe. But what if those responsible for security are negligent, and the security measures are inadequate? What if that negligence results in you or a loved one experiencing a personal injury or loss of life? When these injuries occur, you may have protection under the personal injury laws of North Dakota.
At Larson Law Firm P.C., our legal team focuses on your best interests. Having represented injury victims and families for more than 35 years, we can help with your personal injury case. You can rely on our North Dakota negligent security lawyers to hold property owners accountable for the harm they create or fail to prevent.
What do “negligent security” and “inadequate security” mean?
Property owners have a responsibility to act in a reasonable fashion to ensure safe access for visitors. In order to protect patrons, they should have certain security and safety measure sin please. Some examples of adequate security measures include:
- Hiring a doorman or security guard
- Locking exterior doors
- Maintaining fire safety measures
- Lighting parking lots or hallways
- Maintaining steps, handrails, and elevators
If a crime occurs in a building because the security measures in place were inadequate – someone enters the building through an unsecured door and commits an assault, for example – you may be able to make a claim for negligent security. The perpetrator of the assault may be brought up on charges in criminal court, but that is different; law enforcement makes the arrest, and the county, district, or state’s attorney will bring the charges. Negligent security claims are filed in civil court, against the owner of the property, not the person who committed the crime.
Proving negligent security injuries
Life is unpredictable, and every day, someone, somewhere suffers injury in an accident. But accidents happen for many reasons, and not all injuries are someone else’s fault. When it comes to negligent security claims, injured parties must prove that the harm was due to another person or entity’s negligence. This requires meeting filing deadlines and presenting evidence of the property owner’s actions or failure to act. Our reputable premises liability lawyers have the knowledge and skills to thoroughly investigate your injuries and accurately identify the cause of your injuries.
