Assaults & Attacks
Los Angeles Premises Liability Lawyer
Negligent security may lead to an assault or attack on another's property. For example, you may be walking to your car in the parking lot at a Los Angeles area mall when you are attacked and your wallet or purse is taken. You may suffer physical injury, emotional trauma and also financial losses as a result of this incident. If this could have been prevented had the mall proprietor provided adequate security, this may be grounds for a premises liability claim or lawsuit. Filing a civil suit of this kind gives the victim an opportunity to recover monetary damages for medical care and other expenses or injuries associated with the incident. This may make a significant difference in recovery and the victim's ability to move on.
Risk assessment and proper security planning are important parts of a property owner's responsibility to provide an environment safe from hazardous situations. If a property owner knows of a security issue and does nothing to resolve this, this may be a form of negligence that would qualify as grounds for a premises liability claim if an assault or attack occurs as a result. However, it will be important to discuss the particulars and your legal rights with an attorney to determine exactly how to approach the matter.
