Asserting Your Rights In Negligent Security Cases
You may already know that Kentucky property owners are required to keep their premises free from slip, trip and fall hazards and other dangerous conditions. They are also responsible for addressing security risks and maintaining a safe environment for residents and guests who visit their property. When property owners do not take steps to enhance security, they can be held financially accountable if their negligence leads to an accident with injuries.
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to a breach in security, you may be entitled to receive compensation to cover your medical bills and other damages. At Satterley & Kelley PLLC, our team of personal injury attorneys is ready and equipped to take your case. Residents from across the state turn to our Louisville firm when they need assertive, proven representation.
Understanding Negligent Security Claims
A negligent security claim is a type of premises liability claim. In these claims, the accident survivors and their loved ones may pursue action against property owners who own and operate:
- Grocery stores or malls
- Apartment buildings or other residential complexes
- Office buildings
- Entertainment venues including clubs, bars and amusement parks
- Colleges and universities
- Other locations where security is lacking
These claims can be filed for a range of reasons, including injuries suffered as a result of:
- Blocked or locked exits
- Dim lighting in parking lots, hallways and other heavily trafficked areas
- Broken alarm systems, security systems or door locks
- Poorly trained security guards
Property owners and their insurers aggressively challenge negligent security claims because the payouts can be substantial. When they put up a fight, however, our attorneys will not back down. Each of our attorneys is a strategic negotiator and trial-tested litigator.
