Assault Due to Insufficient Security

When an assault occurs on a commercial property, the property owner may be liable for any damages if it is determined that owner negligence caused or contributed to the attack.

Skaug Law represents clients who have been injured or attacked in retail stores, shopping malls, parking lots, apartment buildings, casinos and other commercial properties.

If you have been attacked in a parking lot, shopping center or other commercial property that was not monitored by security, you may have legal options for pursuing a claim against the property owner.

Inadequate security and preventable attacks

Commercial property owners are responsible for the safety and security of people visiting their property.

This may involve staffing security guards, monitoring the premises by security cameras, providing adequate lighting or installing intercoms.

Accidents and injuries caused by negligent or inadequate security may include:

  • Robberies
  • Assault
  • Sexual attacks

I thank God for you Bruce. I am grateful that you looked over my case, took it and won, when other lawyers wouldn't even return my phone calls. Everyone at the office treated me like I was family. Thank you for everything.  (Used with permission)
