Assaults, violent crimes, and accidents can have a significant devastating impact on your life. The CDC reports that the common types of injuries caused by assaults include:
- Bone fractures
- Cuts & lacerations
- Internal injuries
Even damage to mental health can have serious consequences. Victims can develop PTSD, depression, and various other disorders. While you are injured and stressed, it is best to let experienced personal injury attorneys help you make proper claims.
Negligent security laws require that property owners keep their properties safe and secure for visitors. They are required to take all steps necessary for preventing any foreseeable criminal or violent acts of third parties. In simple terms, if you get assaulted on a property due to a lack of security, you can be eligible to get compensation.
Broken locks on gates, doors, or windows, poorly trained security personnel, poor lighting, lack of emergency exits, and lack of security alarms/cameras are some of the common security lapses. Some of the common incidences that can amount to premises liability or negligent security include:
- Fights at events and no security intervention
- Assaults at nightclubs because of poor security
- Assault in poorly lit/illuminated elevators, halls, or stairwells
- Sexual assault or rape in dorms or other buildings without security monitoring
- Robberies or assault in parking lots or garages where attackers could hide
