There are laws in place to protect you from being the victim of a violent crime by a third party, committed on another’s premises. However, these are not always followed, resulting in serious and often tragic consequences.

“Negligence” is a failure to provide measures, established by law, to protect others against unreasonable risk or harm. Negligent security may involve a variety of expected safety measures, depending on the type of property. For example, there may be poor lighting in and around an apartment complex or in a parking lot, or a lack of appropriate locks or even a security patrol on commercial premises, such as hotels and bars, amusement parks and banks.
The laws regarding negligent security are complex, and there are many issues involved in proving a case, beyond the fact that there have been injuries. These include whether the property owner’s actions and security measures can be considered comparable to what might be expected of any reasonably prudent person. Another factor is whether any actions on the part of the injured person contributed to what occurred, since damages and compensation may be reduced, based on this.
You need someone who knows the law and has the experience to evaluate all the many factors to determine firstly, whether there is a case and, secondly the liability that may be assigned to the property owner as well as the injured party.
You need someone in your corner who can clearly evaluate the realities of the situation and handle all the details, like the proper and timely filing of all paperwork, while you heal.
