Negligent Security Attorneys in Kansas City
Serving Clients throughout Kansas & Missouri
When property owners fail to provide adequate security on their premises, visitors, customers, tenants, and others who were injured as a result of this type of negligence may be eligible to file a premises liability claim. At the law firm of Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., our Kansas City negligent security attorneys build strong cases in pursuit of awards and settlements for individuals injured because of poor security.
Issues in Negligent Security Cases
These can be challenging cases, requiring the plaintiff to prove that the breach of security was the result of negligence. For example, did the property owner know about the burned-out lights and fail to replace them? Should he or she have known? Did the poor lighting lead to the assault that caused the injury? Answers to questions such as these can make or break a case. Our law firm has the resources and knowledge to investigate thoroughly to learn whether negligence caused the inadequate security conditions that led to your injury.
Causes of Action in Negligent Security Claims
Our negligent security attorneys in Kansas City help clients who were injured because property owners failed to provide or maintain:
- Locks on windows and doors
- Lighting in hallways, entrances, and parking lots
- Fencing around the property
- Properly trained security guards
Injuries caused by inadequate security conditions such as these can happen at malls, apartment buildings, entertainment venues, hotels, and other public places. Victims may suffer serious injuries from stabbings, gunshot wounds, rape, and other criminal acts that leave them unable to work, permanently disabled, or emotionally scarred. When these attacks are fatal, it is important for the victim’s loved ones to consult an attorney about filing a wrongful death claim.
