Negligent Building Security

Landlords and the owners of commercial premises must provide basic security to prevent intruders from trespassing on the property and assaulting law-abiding tenants and patrons. When a lack of minimal building security enables an intruder to enter the property and injure lawful occupants, the landlord may be held responsible for money damages to injured occupants with the help of an experienced New York City negligent building security lawyer. If you have been harmed by a trespasser inside your apartment building or any other type of building, simply contact the Law Office of James Trainor, P.C. to protect your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve.

What to Know About Negligent Building Security

Criminal assaults resulting from inadequate safety provisions can occur anywhere, including:

  • Apartment Buildings
  • Office Buildings
  • Hospitals and Nursing Homes
  • College Dormitories and school Buildings
  • Hotels
  • Vacation Resorts
  • Department Stores

Certain signs of landlord negligence are as follows:

  • Broken locks on building entrances and exits
  • Failure to warn or abate known hotspots of criminal conduct
  • Broken gates and barriers
  • Malfunctioning security cameras and monitoring systems
  • Unqualified security personnel
  • Housing of persons with demonstrated violent tendencies

Proving Fault for an Inadequate Security Claim

If a trespasser has harmed you or a loved one, get the legal guidance to prove that the premises owner provided inadequate security and enabled the trespasser to injure you. As an experienced and knowledgeable New York City personal injury firm, if we take your case, we will work to ensure the negligent landlord is held accountable.

Generally, to hold a landlord responsible for negligent security provisions, a New York City personal injury attorney must establish that the landlord or owner:

  1. Knew of the defective security device (e.g., broken door lock), or with the exercise of reasonable care should have learned about it
  2. Had enough time to install or repair the security device
  3. Failed to install or repair the security device
  4. A properly maintained minimal security device likely would have prevented the trespasser from gaining entrance into the building and attacking you
