New York Negligent Security Lawyers


Compassionate Representation for Crime Victims

If you were the victim of a crime on another party’s property, you may be able to collect damages from the property owner. When property owners fail to maintain safe, secure premises, they can be held liable for losses suffered by guests and visitors.

At the Donofrio Law Firm, PLLC, we understand that being the victim of a crime is a traumatic experience. Even if your physical injuries have healed, you may be suffering mental and emotional trauma. An assault can take away your overall sense of well-being and safety. Our lawyers and staff will treat you with care and respect as we work to hold the negligent parties responsible for your injuries.

Inadequate Security Creates a Dangerous Environment

If a crime could have been prevented by adequate security measures, the property owner may be liable for his or her negligence. Some common examples of negligent security include:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Broken locks, doors and gates
  • Lack of security cameras
  • Broken or missing intercoms
  • Broken security systems
  • No security personnel

Any of these defects or failures can create an environment that makes it easy for criminals to prey on others. Unfortunately, the results may include injuries such as physical assault, rape or gunshot wounds.

We will seek compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost income and other related expenses. If you lost a family member as a result of negligent security, we can file a wrongful death claim.

While crime can occur anywhere, we often see negligent security cases from apartment complexes, hotels, parking lots and garages, shopping malls, gas stations, restaurants, bars and other businesses. This is only a partial list; if you were injured elsewhere, you may still be able to collect damages from the property owner.
