If you are the victim of a crime or a criminal attack on another person’s property, you may be able to file a civil lawsuit against the property owner for negligent security. Negligent security falls under premises liability claims. A property owner has a duty of care to provide a safe environment for their guests that is free from hazards and dangers. Failing to address known security issues or criminal threats is negligent and property owners can – and should – be held accountable.
An injured person is able to bring a negligent security lawsuit against a property owner if they can prove that the owner knew of the criminal dangers and failed to address them. They can also bring a lawsuit if the owner should have known of the dangers but failed to take the necessary action.
For example: if a shopping mall has parking garages, these parking garages should be equipped with adequate lighting, security personnel in the area, and camera surveillance. Most parking garages take these steps to ensure the safety of their guests. Some even add additional protections, such as coded gates and locked stairwells. If a parking garage didn’t have enough lighting or failed to provide security on the premises, they can be held accountable for criminal activity or attacks that occur on their property.

They provided an emotional support and treated me like family. It’s never about the money there, but about you, if you are upset they will do everything to help you, and work extremely hard for you. They are extremely honest and straight forward. I would recommend Mr. Paysinger to everyone, because they truly and genuinely care about you.
