Suffering harm while on someone else's property can be very traumatic, particularly if you are the victim of a crime. Property owners are responsible for making sure that their real estate is secure. If your injury resulted from an owner's failure to provide adequate protection, you may be entitled to receive compensation.
At the Chester Law Group, we have over 30 years of experience in helping the injured, and we have a proven record of getting results. If you or a loved one was injured on someone else's property, our attorneys are there for you through every step of your case.
Negligent Security Can Lead To Harm
While it is impossible to predict whether or not you will fall victim to a crime, property owners are still required to take measures to prevent the likelihood of one from occurring. This is true for both owners of private property and owners of public places such as shopping centers and hotels. Examples of security measures include:
- Making sure doors and windows have locks
- Having security guards to monitor the property and limit who gains entrance
- Installing video cameras
- Ensuring that all areas are well lit
- Posting signs to warn people of any danger
If the property does not have such measures in place, or a responsible party fails to maintain them, the owner may be found responsible for any injury you suffer as a result. We help you seek monetary compensation that can help with things like your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
