Negligent Security

Could your injury have been prevented with the proper security?

No one would argue that a person who commits a criminal act that harms another should not be held responsible for their actions. Under our civil justice system, a victim or the victim’s family may also have a claim against the property owner or management company if there was a failure to provide adequate security measures that would have prevented the criminal act. Such cases are challenging, and require an experienced attorney to evaluate for merit and provide effective representation.

The attorneys at the Lynn Law Firm have been at the vanguard of obtaining results for their clients in challenging negligent security cases.
