Property owners and occupiers are required to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition, which includes providing proper lighting, locks, sometimes a security system and other safety features. If an owner or occupier fails to provide for the safety of people on their property, and someone is injured or killed on the property as the result of events which occur on the property, including crimes, the owner or occupier can be found liable for those injuries.
The attorneys at New York’s O’Hare Parnagian LLP have extensive experience helping injured people, their families and the families of victims of wrongful death recover money for assaults and injuries sustained because of inadequate building security in apartment buildings, office buildings, parking garages malls and shopping centers. We will thoroughly investigate and pursue claims against all responsible parties including the building owner, building occupier, and the security company that was responsible for making the premises safe. Incidents include:
Because the law limits the time in which you can bring a claim, you should contact us immediately to investigate your case. Sometimes filings must be made within 90 days of the injury.
