New York Negligent Security Attorneys

negligent securityNegligent security leads to senseless crimes every day. Property owners have a duty to keep others on their property safe from harm, including criminal assault. If they fail to take adequate safety measures or warn visitors of dangerous conditions, they can be held liable for negligent security.

If you or a loved one was involved in an accident on someone else’s property due to inadequate security and suffered serious injuries, the negligent security lawyers at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. can help. We represent victims who were injured because property owners failed to provide proper security to those on their property, including landlords failing to take reasonable measures to ensure the safety of their tenants and guests. We have the experience, knowledge, and resources to help you obtain the full compensation that you are entitled to.

Holding the Negligent Parties Liable

Under New York law, owners of residential or commercial property have a duty to take reasonable measures to ensure that those who come onto their property do not suffer an injury. If you have been injured as a result of a property owner’s negligence in providing a safe premise on their property, we can help you pursue full and fair compensation for all of your losses.

When you retain us to help you recover damages for any type of negligent security on someone else’s property, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts of your case. We even travel to the scene of the accident, if necessary. Depending on the specific facts of your case, we will look for a wide range of evidence, such as:

  • Failure by a property owner to provide adequate lighting or to ensure that the lighting was fully functional
  • Inadequate or broken locks and other security devices, such as door and window security measures
  • Lack of necessary security patrols, especially in areas where the property owner knew or had reason to know that a dangerous condition existed

Our legal team has extensive experience handling negligent security cases. We have the investigative resources to find the facts in these types of premises liability cases. We will work hard to identify the cause of your injury and to hold all responsible parties liable.
