Lake County Security Liability Lawyer

Security Hazards and Property Owner Negligence

Security liability cases are complex, and it falls on the injured to prove the presence of true negligence on the part of a property owner. But if you or a loved one has suffered serious injury due to the gross negligence of a property owner to provide reasonable and adequate security, then you may be entitled to compensation.

You can't protect your rights if you don't know what they are. You may have fallen in a poorly lit area of a parking ramp or you may have been an innocent bystander injured in an uncontained bar fight. If you suspect that you have a security liability claim, then you need to talk to an attorney that understands the law, will provide clear guidance and that can fight for you in and out of the courtroom.

At the Lake County law offices of Salvi & Maher, L.L.C., our lawyers have provided experienced and effective personal injury and premises liability representation for Illinois clients for more than 20 years.

Failure to Provide Adequate Security

Security liability cases can arise because of improper or inadequate lighting, failure to install emergency talk boxes or other communication devices, lack of adequate security staffing or training, or for any number of reasons. If a property owner fails to take reasonable steps to secure a building, parking ramp, club, bar or other public space, and serious injury results, then the injured party may be able to file a claim against that property owner's insurance. As in most premises liability cases, we will work to demonstrate the property owner's negligence. We can investigate the conditions that caused or led to the injury and present that evidence at the negotiating table or at trial. We may consult with security experts to determine what security measures are usually used where the injury occurred. These cases often come down to being able to successfully argue that a homeowner or business owner should have recognized the hazard of their action or inaction.

Our firm has built a proven reputation of success spanning more than two decades, and helped seriously injured clients pursue appropriate compensation. We understand how to work with and litigate against insurance providers, and we can work to help you make sure that you have a full and fair settlement.
