What is Negligent Security?
Negligent security is a term used to describe unsafe conditions resulting from inadequate security. A person may file a negligent security claim if they are injured on another person’s property and their injury was the result of inadequate security on the property.
No two negligent security cases are the same. These cases are fact-specific. This means that the security precautions that are considered adequate to ensure safety in one location may be considered negligent when applied to another location. There are various factors that influence the level of security of a property. These include:
- The location of the property
- The property’s purpose i.e. what happens within the property
- A history of incidents in the location or in the building
- Crime rates in the area
For example, a retail store located in a high-crime neighborhood would require more security measures than one located in a low-crime neighborhood.
Property owners are generally required to reasonably foresee possible crime and therefore take steps to ensure the security of their premises. Security measures may include:
- Installing adequate security lighting
- Installing a fence
- Installing security cameras and ensuring that they are working
- Using adequate locks
- Providing staff members with training to ensure that they are able to respond to threats properly
- Employing security guards
- Ensuring adequate surveillance on the property
- Providing adequate signage alerting people of known dangers on the property

What is Personal Injury?
If you’re injured as a result of a negligent third party, you may be entitled to compensation due to the damages you’ve experienced — either directly through the responsible party or their insurance company. An experienced New York personal injury lawyer will focus on tort law while seeking economic and non-economic damages for their clients — whether or not the target is a multi-million dollar award.
Personal injuries are classified as injuries to the body, mind, and emotions of an individual. When you suffer an injury because of another party, you experience turmoil, and your quality of life will change. Some victims experience loss of enjoyment of life, and even depression.
It’s important to speak with mindful attorneys who have the wisdom to handle your case effectively. Personal injury suits are filed against individuals or entities that cause harm due to recklessness, negligence, misconduct, or liability.

When your vehicle collides with another vehicle, a pedestrian, an animal, debris, or another stationary obstruction such as a tree, pole, or building, you may face significant injuries and expenses that often include medical treatment and vehicle repairs. Following a car accident that was no fault of your own, it is important to immediately begin working with a New York personal injury lawyer to seek fair and appropriate compensation.
Motor vehicle accidents involving a truck or tractor-trailer and caused by the recklessness of others will present additional complex factors that are not present in a regular car accident case. You can be certain that there will be attorneys representing the truck driver, which is why you should partner with a New York personal injury lawyer at our law office immediately.
When your motorcycle is involved in a motor vehicle accident at no fault of your own, you will need help in your fight to be fairly compensated in your case. As a client of our law firm, you can be confident that we are bringing the fight to the insurance company.
An injury from an accident caused by unsafe conditions on someone else’s property often involves a fall on a slippery or uneven surface.

Our law office of NY accident attorneys will be happy to guide you through this process as our client.
Dog owners are generally determined to be liable if their dog hurts you or anyone else. New York personal injury law in this situation provides a means to seek compensation for your medical expenses, your pain and suffering, & much more.
A property owner could be liable for damages if you slip, trip, and fall on their property due to their negligence. Working with a qualified New York personal injury lawyer in this situation is important because the Queens, Nassau County, Suffolk County, or Long Island property owner that you file a claim against will certainly be represented by law firms who are trying to dismiss or settle your case for as little as possible.
An injury sustained due to working on a construction site can be life-changing or deadly. In many cases, such an injury will prevent your ability to continue working for some duration of time.

When you work with a licensed medical professional, you have every right to expect that they will take prudent and cautious steps to help you work towards a successful recovery.
