Security Failures at Hotels, Motels & Apartment Complexes
Safety should be the number one concern for owners of hotels, motels, casinos, bars, nightclubs, and apartment complexes. However, many times this is not the case. Far too often, poor lighting is a breading ground for criminals to prey on their victims. Lack of security at these establishments is a major factor in allowing these crimes to occur. Hotels, motels, bars, nightclubs, casinos, and apartment complexes need to take the appropriate steps of installing cameras, hiring competent security guards, and performing background checks on all of their employees. Unfortunately many premises owners fail to take these steps and victims of crime suffer from what could have been avoided, such as guests or occupants being:
- injured during a robbery
Our crime victim attorneys have recently brought cases against such property owners for inadequate security in hotels, motels, shopping malls, parking lots, offices, restaurants, nightclubs, and condos.
PA, NY, and NJ Negligent Security Attorneys
Our experienced negligent security attorneys will analyze the circumstances of your victimization as a result from a crime. We will aggressively pursue owners of hotels, motels, casinos, nightclubs, bars, and other commercial premises including apartment complexes for their omissions with respect to adequate security, lighting, and background checks. Our attorneys research the location where the crime occurred, and if the owner of that property was aware of crime in the area, they should have hired qualified security guards and taken other adequate steps.
Apartment complexes can also be liable for negligent security where security guards failed to carry out their duties which enabled the crime to occur. In many instances the breach of security could have easily been prevented and as such the owner of the apartment complex will be liable for injuries sustained by the victim.
