Negligent Security Lawyers
When Security is Lax, Innocent People Get Hurt —
Armstrong Gets You Compensated for Your Injuries

Negligent security lawyers at Armstrong the Law Firm can help you obtain compensation for your injuries and other damages if you’ve been injured by an attack or criminal activity on property that should have been protected against such crimes. Personal injury lawsuits can be filed against property owners if they failed to provide reasonable security against foreseeable crimes and someone gets hurt when one of those crimes is committed.

In Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas attorney Richard L. Armstrong and his team have the experience and resources to win negligent security cases and obtain compensation for clients injured during preventable crimes.

When can You File a Lawsuit for Negligent Security? Lawyer Explains

People can file personal injury lawsuits against property owners for failing to protect them from injury-causing criminal activity when the following conditions exist:

  1. The injured person is not the one who committed the crime
  2. A crime occurred and resulted in injury to the person filing the lawsuit
  3. The crime was one that could have been foreseen as a possibility, e.g. hiring or retaining an employee with known proclivities for sexually assaulting children
  4. The property owner did not take reasonable measures to protect customers or residents against such crimes and potential injury that could result
  5. The person filing the lawsuit was injured as a direct result of the crime or criminal activity

However, Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas attorney Richard L. Armstrong notes that not every crime that results in injuries is a case of negligent security. You and your attorney must prove that the crime was both foreseeable and preventable through reasonable security measures.

Banks and jewelry stores, for example, are more likely to be targets of robberies than the mom-and-pop delicatessen downtown. Therefore, banks and jewelry stores are expected to maintain a higher level of security. Income level may also play a role in determining what security measures are reasonable. For example, an expensive high-rise apartment building would be expected to maintain a higher level of security for renters than the elderly couple who rents out the apartment over their garage.

There are also many other factors that may influence the success of a negligent security case. Most people without legal training and experience are unable to determine with certainly whether they should file personal injury lawsuits for negligent security. Lawyers at Armstrong recommend that, if you were injured because of criminal activity on someone’s property, you speak with an experienced lawyer and let them help you decide whether to pursue a lawsuit.
