When violence of any kind occurs in a public place, victims and their families are justified in asking if better security measures could have prevented the tragedy. Negligent or inadequate security can often be to blame in a case involving assault, rape, homicide or other personal injury in many public venues.
If you or a loved one has suffered personal injuries caused by inadequate security, you should contact an attorney as you may be entitled to compensation. The legal team at the Nourmand Law Firm has the experience and resources to handle these types of cases. We make it our goal to get you the compensation that you deserve.Different Locations Where Inadequate Security May Be an Issue

- Apartment buildings
- Nursing homes
- College dorms
- Cruise ships
- Day care centers
- Parking lots
- Office buildings
- Movie theaters
Have you or a loved one been injured in a public venue? With the assistance of experienced personal injury counsel at Nourmand Law Firm, we can help you to file a personal law suit against potentially liable entities. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries or loss, if other parties are found legally liable for inadequate security measures.What Happens After a Personal Injury in a Public Place?
If you or someone you love was injured or killed because of violence in a public area, there should be a prompt investigation. Your personal injury legal team in Los Angeles should determine if sufficient security was in place. For example:
- Were locks and security cameras functioning?
- Were security personnel doing their jobs properly?
- Was there adequate lighting in all areas of the property?
Your lawyer will determine what companies, people and entities were responsible for all security at that location, and whether they were doing their jobs at the time of the incident.Who May Be Liable for Inadequate Security?
Possible defendants may be:
- The owner or manager of the property where the victim was injured
- Any entity that controlled the business
- Any contractor or vendor that may have installed security equipment
- The promoter or organizer of the event
- Any security firm that employed security guards
You cannot recover financial damages by only showing you or your loved one was injured or killed on a commercial property. The owner of the property is not automatically liable if someone is injured or killed there.
Civil liability comes into play when it can be proven in court that someone or an entity failed to exercise proper care in providing adequate security. It must also be shown that the negligence led to the injuries or death in the case.
Remember, as a victim, you are not powerless. You can fight back against anyone who hurt you intentionally. You also can obtain justice from all parties who are legally responsible for any physical injuries, emotional trauma or death that occurred due to inadequate security.Personal Injury Attorneys With a Proven Record
