Were you seriously injured due to inadequate security in Texas? Read our 3 negligent security tips that may help your case, then call us!
1) Negligent Security Injury Claims
People who come to me for negligent security claims or premises security claims come to me because either they themselves or a loved one has been assaulted on commercial premises. What people don’t know about these types of claims is that the law protects consumers, customers, tenants, etc. from foreseeable criminal activity on these premises. An experienced trial lawyer will know to look for a history of prior criminal violent activity not just on the premises, but around the premises. Other things that an experienced trial lawyer with experience in this area of the law does is they look to see whether the premises is being kept up. For example, whether an apartment complex has adequate lighting or whether a mall has enough security.
If you have been injured or if a loved one has been injured or killed because of negligent premises security or inadequate premises security, give us a call. If you have any question about situations such as these, we are ready and willing to answer your questions.
2) Property Owner Attempting to Transfer Liability
Oftentimes, the defendant or the commercial property owner or the landlord attempts to shift blame onto the person who did the attack. That is a very, very common defense; under the law, however, a premises owner is responsible for the safety of its guests when there is a history of violent criminal activity, not just on the premises but also in the surrounding area. An experienced trial lawyer with experience in this area of the law knows this. If you are in search of such an attorney and need questions answered concerning your premises security case, please give us a call.
3) Timeline for a Negligent Security Injury Case
Oftentimes clients who have been seriously injured due to negligent security or a premises security situation wonder how long it will take for this case to resolve. There are two major factors that come into play. One is what sort of medical treatment is required. A recent Chavez law case involved a client who was assaulted in a restaurant/bar. The assault caused permanent vision loss. A serious injury like this that requires a good deal of treatment can affect how long the case will take.
Another factor is whether or not the insurance company representative for the premises or for the apartment complex will negotiate in good faith. The truth of the matter is this: When the defendant is unwilling to pay full and fair compensation, the case will go to trial, extending the length of the case.
