Experienced Attorneys Handling Inadequate Security Personal Injury Claims

Many owners of establishments or property have the legal duty to provide adequate security and/or take reasonable precautions in order to keep patrons safe from violent acts. If property owners negligently fail to take reasonable measures to protect visitors, they may be held liable for any losses suffered due to any violent acts that cause injury. Inadequate security cases may be complicated, so you always want to consult with an experienced premises liability attorney to discuss a possible legal claim. If you have suffered injury, call the St. Louis law office of The Bruning Law Firm at (314) 898-3078 for assistance today.

Types of Businesses that May Be Held Liable for Inadequate Security

Almost every commercial property owner has the legal duty to exercise reasonable care1 in order to protect invited customers or other visitors from harm. Such harm includes violent crimes such as assaults, robbery, rape, and more. If any of these crimes occur because the premises were not adequately safe, the owner should be held accountable for having inadequate security. Types of businesses that are often held liable for inadequate security include the following:

  • Office building
  • Condominium or apartment complex
  • Parking lots or garages
  • Nightclubs and bars
  • Casinos
  • Restaurants
  • Sports arenas
  • Concert venues
  • Convention centers
  • Hospitals and medical centers
  • Hotels and motels
  • Cruise ships
  • Vacations resorts
  • Bus or train terminals
  • Schools
  • Convenience stores
  • Colleges or universities (including dorms)
  • Construction sites
  • Banks or ATMs
  • Child care centers

In order to prevail against such establishments in an inadequate security claim, you must must prove that you (1) were an authorized visitor, customer, or tenant; (2) the property owner had a duty of care2 to provide adequate security; (3) the property owner failed to provide adequate security; and (4) that the violent act would not have happened if adequate security had been in place.
