If you’ve been injured on someone else’s property due to negligence or unsafe conditions, you may be able to file a premises liability lawsuit against the responsible party. You may also have options to receive compensation if a business fails to provide adequate security to prevent a crime from happening, also called negligent security. At Feinberg & Alban PC, our Boston attorneys have helped hundreds of people with their premises liability and negligent security cases, and we work hard to get injured people the compensation they need to cover pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses.

What are premises liability and negligent security?

Premises liability cases involve people being injured due to unsafe conditions on another party’s property. The most common examples of this are commercial premises, such as retail stores and restaurants, where people may trip over objects, slip on wet surfaces or suffer burns and other injuries. Property owners are responsible for these injuries, and a dependable lawyer can help you seek monetary damages after an accident.

If you’re the victim of a crime, property owners or operators may be liable for negligent security if they failed to maintain reasonably safe premises for the people who patronize them. To prove negligent security, you generally must demonstrate the following:

  • Reoccurring problems. Property owners are generally not liable for crimes that occur on their premises unless there has been a documented pattern of crime occurring there. In these cases, the owners have a responsibility to improve security for their guests.
  • Poor security measures. If a property continues to have crime issues, the property owner must implement security measures, to a reasonable degree. This might include better lighting, security guards, improved locks, perimeter protection and overall better maintenance.
  • Failure to comply with laws. While not an absolute requirement, you have a much better chance of receiving compensation if the owner or operator did not meet local, state or federal laws in maintaining the property.

Your options for receiving compensation

Depending on the extent and severity of the injury, you may seek compensation for a variety of issues. These include the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental and emotional stress
  • Punitive damages

Each premises liability and negligent security case is different, so be sure to speak with a lawyer at Feinberg & Alban about your options for receiving compensation after an accident or crime resulting in personal injury.
