New York Negligent Security Attorneys

Negligent 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.

What Negligent Security Claims Commonly Involve

Negligent security cases can involve a variety of different situations. Below is a list of common situations that involve negligent security claims:

  • Attacks in elevators and stairwells
  • Assaults in hospitals or hotels
  • Landlord liability
  • Negligent bank / ATM kiosk security
  • Forced entry
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Inadequate parking lot surveillance

  • Negligent hiring
  • Negligent theme park security
  • Negligent college campus and dorm room security
  • Negligent hospital security
  • Negligent nursing home and assisted living residence security
  • Sleep-away camps

Regardless of what type of negligence caused your injuries while on someone else’s property, our personal injury attorneys will work hard to get you the full compensation that you deserve. We will look at the specific facts surrounding your accident to strategize how the accident happened and how to hold the responsible parties accountable for the injuries you suffered.

Important Steps to Take After an Accident

The steps you take after a negligent security related accident can significantly impact the outcome of your personal injury case. Our attorneys recommend that you take the following steps to protect your legal rights:

  • Call 911 if you have suffered serious injuries.
  • Seek immediate medical attention, even if you believe your injuries are minor. Symptoms of certain medical conditions may take days or weeks to surface.
  • Do not admit fault or apologize to anyone, especially the property owner or manager responding to the accident.
  • Document the scene of the accident by taking as many pictures as possible.
  • Do not provide a statement, especially a recorded statement, to any insurance adjuster.
  • Consult with an experienced New York negligent security lawyer.

Cindy C.
A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers.
