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.

Incidents Caused by Negligent or Inadequate Security

Negligent and/or inadequate security—whether that means the absence of security guards in a high-crime area or insufficient lighting in a dark parking lot—can lead to a number of different incidents that may result in serious harm, catastrophic injury, and even death.

Some examples of incidents that can result from inadequate security include:

  • Physical assaults and/or battery
  • Sexual assault
  • Kidnapping
  • Stabbings
  • Shootings
  • Property damage
  • Theft/robbery
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Homicide/murder

Note that these and other similar incidents can occur on or near all types of properties—shopping malls, restaurants, bars, public parks, condominiums, apartment complexes, train platforms, subways, concert venues, retail stores, parking lots, government buildings, and more.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
