Victimized Due To Inadequate Security?
If a property owner or manager fails to provide reasonable security and you or a family member is a victim of an assault, rape, murder or other crime, you may be entitled to damages for your losses, including lost wages, medical expenses, physical pain and mental suffering or loss of support.
If you have suffered permanent disability or disfigurement, or if you have lost a relative and wish to file a wrongful death lawsuit, the experienced legal team at Comerford Chilson & Moser, L.L.P., can help. If you would like an evaluation of your case and efforts to be made to see whether the claim can be resolved through a settlement with the insurance company, contact our Winston-Salem lawyers for an evaluation.
Understanding Premises Liability Law
Under premises liability law, shopping centers, motels, warehouses, parking lots, ramps, decks and other public places need to be kept reasonably secure. Inadequate lighting, faulty locks and alarms, and failure to maintain high visibility can all be examples of a failure to provide adequate security.
We find some property owners, after reviewing a security analysis recommendation, simply fail to spend the money to put the program in place. In other cases, the security company doesn’t maintain enough guards.
Not every case will result in a settlement or judgment for the plaintiff. However, the initial consultation is free and you will only pay an attorney fee if we obtain a recovery for you.
