North Carolina Negligent Security Lawyers
Injuries Caused by Inadequate Security
Every day, countless people visit public places, such as a shopping centers,
theaters, commercial office buildings, and
retail stores. When people visit these public venues, they expect that they will be
able to shop or enjoy the premises without substantial risk of harm. In
fact, it is the responsibility of the property owner to ensure that their
property is adequately secure based on the risk potential in the surrounding
environment. A dark parking lot in a shopping center may always have the
potential of being dangerous if a criminal is in the neighborhood. Theaters
or retail stores in high-crime areas would be expected to have security
cameras or even security guards on the premises. If proper precautions
are not taken and someone becomes the victim of a crime, he or she may
have cause for legal action against the property owner.
If you or someone you know has been a victim of a crime or has been threatened
in such a situation, contact a North Carolina negligent security lawyer
at Lanier Law Group to discuss the circumstances surrounding your incident.
We can review the matter to determine if you have grounds for a
premises liability claim.
