Is your property owner at fault for your damages?

Many apartments, condominiums, and college dormitories have security. Residents usually pay an additional amount every month to have security guards or security equipment in the common areas of the buildings. Because the residents pay for this service every month, they have an expectation that the security will keep them safe from crimes and assaults. When a landlord or owner fails to provide the adequate amount of security, he exposes the residents of the building to injury from crimes and break-ins. If your landlord or building supervisor was negligent in providing security and you were injured as a result, you may be able to file a New York negligent security lawsuit to compensate you for your pain and suffering. A NYC premises liability lawyer can help you file a claim for compensation.

If security is negligent, and as a result a resident of the building is injured or killed, the security and the owners of the property might be liable for damages. Owners of a property have a responsibility to provide security guards and security cameras if they say that they will. Security cameras are an important deterrent to criminal behavior. If you were injured because of a lack of security cameras, you may have a claim for premises liability against the owner of the building.

Claims for negligent security are a different type of claim than the usual premises liability claim. These claims are called third party liability claims. A third party liability claim arises when you are suing your landlord or building owner for the actions of another third party. In this case, the third party is the criminal that injured you when security was supposed to be keeping you safe. These claims can often be difficult to prevail in, because the injured party must show that the intervening criminal behavior was foreseeable by the landlord or building owner.

This requires lengthy investigation into whether the defendant knew or should have known that the building was susceptible to criminal acts. If you have a third party negligent security claim, you need to make sure your attorneys are experienced in handling this type of matter. The negligent security lawyers at Belushin Law Firm can handle the investigation and lawsuit and will help to make sure you are compensated for your injuries.
