Commercial Property owners that promise security have a duty of care to ensure their visitors and customers are reasonably safe from crimes and violent attacks while on the premises. Negligent security cases come into play when this duty of care is not met. That is, when a crime was committed as a result of inadequate security measures (lack of fences, adequate lighting, locks, cameras, or security guards). If you've been the victim of a crime and believe inadequate or negligent security was involved, you may be eligible for compensation. Contact our negligent security attorneys to discuss your case.Get Help Now
We reached this settlement for the family of a man who was killed attempting to stop car thieves from stealing his vehicle from his driveway. The victim lived in a North Charleston gated community that, at the time of the incident, had an inoperable security gate. Security guards controlled the gate during the day, but the HOA had made no effort to implement any stopgap measures for overnight security when their shift ended. As a result, the car thieves were able to enter the community unencumbered.
