Settlement Reached in Negligent Security Case

The Case: We represented a 28-year-old female who was working the night shift in a secured power plant facility when an unauthorized individual broke through the security gates, sought out the female, and assaulted her, causing a mild traumatic brain injury. Prior to her shift, the Plaintiff had notified her supervisor that she was concerned for her safety. Despite this warning, evidence showed that the intruder drove directly through an open gate in the facility, and that no extra precautions were taken to secure the Plaintiff. As a result of the assault, the client's work capacity diminished, and she suffered from continued headaches, light sensitivity, depression, and night terrors.

The Outcome: We filed a lawsuit alleging negligent security on the part of the security company and failure to provide a safe workplace on the part of the employer. Just prior to a trial, this settlement was reached between our client, the security company, and her employer.
