Ensuring your safety by taking adequate security measures is the responsibility of property owners and other parties. You may have the right to hold another responsible if these measures were overlooked or neglected and you were injured as a result.
If you’ve been the victim of an attack that could have been prevented through proper security measures, you deserve an advocate who will stand up for you. At Dansker & Aspromonte Associates, our Bronx negligent security lawyers have worked with victims like you. We understand the physical and emotional trauma you’ve experienced and will fight to hold the negligent parties accountable.
If You Were Hurt on a Property, the Owner Could Be Liable
There may be no way to eliminate the risk of an assault entirely, but there are a number of security measures that every property owner and others can and should take to protect the safety of visitors, residents, and others.
Many attack victims are under the incorrect assumption that their only legal recourse option is to bring criminal charges against their attacker. Negligent security falls under the umbrella of premises liability cases. Negligent security cases involve situations where a property owner or other party’s failure to provide adequate security leaves you victim to crimes of opportunity.
If you’ve been the victim of an attack, you could have a number of options. A Bronx negligent security lawyer can explain your rights and could support you in bringing a premises liability claim against the owner, tenant, or property manager of the property where you were attacked. In some instances, you may also be able to bring a claim against a party who was hired to provide security at the premises.
At Dansker & Aspromonte Associates, we will perform a careful and thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your assault, gather and preserve evidence and build a strong claim for maximum compensation.
We Can Help You Seek Compensation for Pain and Suffering and Property Damages
If our investigation reveals that a property owner or other responsible party failed to act reasonably to provide adequate security at the premises and those failures led to serious physical or emotional injuries, you may be entitled to recover substantial compensation for each and every type of damage you sustained including:
- Pain and suffering, mental anguish, and diminished quality of life
- Current and future medical bills
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation services
- Current and future lost wages
- Current and future reductions in earning capacity as a result of physical or emotional injuries
- Property damages
No amount of financial compensation can erase the trauma of what you’ve experienced. However, a fair and just settlement can allow you the ability to focus on your physical and emotional recovery while compensating you for the injustice of your assault.
We Can Take the Stress Out of Building a Case
If you have been injured in an assault, contact an experienced and dedicated team of lawyers to fight for you as soon as possible. Building an effective negligent security claim usually requires an investigation while the evidence of your attack is available and before it is lost forever. Some of the types of actions we may take to build your claim include:
- Conducting a site visit and taking photographs
- Securing video footage
- Interviewing witnesses
- Retaining an expert in premises security to analyze the facts
- Obtaining all police and internal investigation records
- Canvassing the neighborhood
- Researching crime statistics for the location of the assault
- Collecting all medical and hospital records that document your injuries
Once we have gathered the necessary evidence to build your case, we will negotiate with the at-fault party or parties for the best possible settlement for you that takes into consideration all of your damages.
The Statute of Limitations in Your Case
If you feel that your assault was due to negligent security, call a qualified team of lawyers as soon as possible. In New York State, you generally have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit.
When you give us a call, we can explain more about the filing deadlines that could apply to your case. If you fail to bring your claim by the applicable filing deadline, you may be forever barred from recovering the compensation you would otherwise deserve.
