Monmouth County Inadequate Security Lawyers
Skilled Red Bank, NJ Premises Liability Attorneys
Retailers, parking garage owners, apartment managers, and other property owners can be held liable for failing to provide adequate security for their patrons. Holding NJ property owners responsible for a lack of adequate security often involves issues of foreseeability: could a retailer, parking garage operator or office building owner have foreseen the possibility of risks to the personal safety of their patrons? For example, is there crime in the area? Are customers leaving a store carrying valuable items? Are there areas on a parking lot or in a garage that is dark and without security cameras? At Drazin and Warshaw, P.C., our premises liability attorneys hold property owners financially accountable for injuries to our clients that happen as the result of a physical assault on their property.
If you’ve been the victim of a crime on a poorly lit parking lot, unattended parking garage or office building without front-door security, contact premises liability lawyers at Drazin and Warshaw today to schedule an appointment to discuss your case.
Lack of Adequate Security Measures and Premises Liability in New Jersey
The law office of Drazin and Warshaw, P.C. recovers damages for victims of criminal assaults that occur due to the following kinds of negligent security:
- Absence of security cameras
- Lack of mall or parking lot security
- Darkened stairwells
- Broken front door locks on apartment buildings
- Absence of front door security in an office building
- Lack of a parking garage attendant
- Insufficient lighting
Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable for Inadequate Security
When necessary, our attorneys consult with safety experts, investigators and other professionals in exposing inadequate security measures on the part of stores, parking garages and office building managers. Even in cases where some security measures are in place, failure to act to prevent other foreseeable risks may constitute a violation of a duty of care that New Jersey property owners have toward patrons.
For instance, if a retailer has security cameras and security personnel inside a store but none in the parking lot, this is, in a sense, an acknowledgement of the risk for theft and crime inside the store. Why, then, would there not be a similar risk in the parking lot?
