“My son was badly hurt when he was hit while riding his bike. The insurance company said he ‘darted out’ and denied the claim. I got letters from a dozen Milwaukee lawyers. Someone I trusted recommended K&P. They immediately investigated and sued. They hired experts and won the case. I can’t thank them enough.”

Washington County Negligent Security Attorneys
When violent crimes happen, it can often result in the victim being seriously harmed. If you have been seriously injured due to negligent security on someone else’s property, you may be eligible to bring a negligent security case. These property owners owe you a safe environment and when they fail to provide it, they can be held accountable for the injuries and harm you sustain. If you have been harmed on public property because of a property owner’s negligence, please call our office today to get in touch with our Washington County negligent security attorneys to get a free consultation.
There are several things that a public property owner is liable for. They are liable for the safety of their visitors, for one, and they need to reduce the amount of accidents and incidents that could happen on their property. They are also responsible for educating themselves about the crime in their area and taking measures to protect their visitors from this crime. If there is not enough done to protect them, these property owners will be the liable party in a negligent security claim.
Proving Liability in Order to Have a Successful Negligent Security Case
Attacks at several locations can fall under negligent security. Those locations include:
- Parking ramps and lots
- Hotels and motels
- Gas stations
- Shopping malls
- Grocery stores
- Strip malls, etc.
There are a few things that you need to be aware of when you are seeking compensation for negligent security. You will be able to bring a case against the individual who harmed you; that is an option, but it is not necessarily the best choice to make if you want the best chance of success.
You are more likely to find success when you bring your case against the property owner for not preventing this incident from occurring. That is what we suggest for cases like yours.
In order to have the best chance of success for your negligent security case, there are four things that need to happen:
- You have to be able to prove that the party you are putting at liability of this accident was indeed the owner of the property at the time of the incident.
- You have to be able to prove that the property owner knew about the conditions of their property allowed for an incident to happen and that they didn’t do anything to prevent it.
- You have to be able to prove that there was insufficient security on their property.
- You have to be able to prove that all of these factors directly led to you being harmed.
Washington County Negligent Security and Premises Liability
When you hear the term negligent security, you may think that it is non-specific. That is on purpose. The term negligent security is used to umbrella a lot of different incidents that may happen to you. Generally speaking if you were harmed by something that someone could have prevented had they done something to their property to protect you, that is going to be a negligent security claim.
The following are crimes that are typically the ones that are involved in a negligent security claim:
- Armed robbery and/or mugging
- Assault and sexual assault (such as rape)
- Burglary and/or theft
Essentially, if you have a negligent security case, that means that your case happened because of the negligence of a property owner. Had they done something to prevent your incident, you would not have been harmed.
Maybe they could have hired a security guard, had better lighting in the ramps, cameras in the store, etc. Something they did not do what they knew they should have done and now there are injuries and damages.
The list of possible prevention methods continues with installing gates and locks, adding fencing, being careful about which employees get to have a key, etc. Our job is to identify what they knew they should have done, but did not do.
Most importantly, in a successful claim, the owner of the property has to have known that they were missing security. They also have to have known that they were not protecting visitors from what harmed you. If you can prove these things, then you will have a successful case.
