Salina Negligent Security Attorneys
When property owners fail to secure your safety and you are injured as a result, we are here to fight for you.
Sometimes, we end up in areas where criminal activity is known to be a problem. It is unavoidable that at one point or another you will have to go to these places for a meeting at an office building, or visiting a friend’s apartment, or maybe just a night on the town. You have a right to live your life and should find comfort knowing that owners of these places owe you a duty to provide a reasonable level of security for your safety, but also in order to deter further criminal activity from occurring on the premises.
Unfortunately, some property owners fail to take steps that require minimal effort, but would provide a safe and secure environment for their visitors. If you were the victim of a crime on the property of another, contact the Kansas negligent security attorneys at Neustrom & Associates. Being the victim of a crime can not only lead to sustaining serious injuries, but can also have lasting psychological impacts. Here at Neustrom & Associates we hold property owners accountable for the physical and psychological impacts you have sustained as a result of a crime.
What is a negligent security claim?
In Kansas, owners or managers of property in an area known to have criminal activity are required to take reasonable security measures. Such measures might include:
- Security guards
- Surveillance systems
- Automatic locking doors
These type of safety precautions can prevent further crimes from occurring on the property. Visible security measures, in particular, can be effective at deterring crimes as those considering criminal activity will question their ability to get away with it.
If you have been a victim of a crime on someone else’s property, you may have a negligent security claim. Consult with a knowledgeable negligent security attorney as soon as possible to evaluate all possible claims for monetary damages.
Making property safe in notably unsafe areas is a property owner’s obligation. If you have been the victim of a crime because a property owner failed to do this, contact our negligent security attorneys today.
