Palmdale Negligent Security Lawyer
When you enter a building, attend an event, enter your apartment building or complex, or otherwise visit a property, you have a reasonable expectation that you will be safe. However, poor security measures can put you at risk. The law refers to these situations as cases of “Negligent Security,” which fall under the broader umbrellas of personal injury and premises liability law. Trevino Law Firm has extensive experience in personal injury cases, including those involving a wide range of premises liability matters. Lead attorney Darlene Trevino and her dedicated team approach every case with compassion and commitment, offering personalized service to ensure our clients’ needs are being met. Learn more below about this important area of the law, and contact our experienced Palmdale negligent security lawyer for help with a claim.
What Is Negligent Security?
Negligent security occurs when the property owner or those responsible for maintaining safety on the premises fail to take reasonable measures to protect visitors or tenants from foreseeable harm. This could be due to inadequate lighting, lack of surveillance cameras, broken locks, or poorly trained security personnel, among other reasons. If you’ve suffered harm due to such neglect, such as an assault, you may have a legal claim, not just against the party who assaulted you, but also the property whose negligence facilitated the attack.
How Trevino Law Firm Approaches Negligent Security Cases in Palmdale
Trevino Law Firm brings a unique blend of professionalism and personalized care to each negligent security case. Unlike larger personal injury firms where you may feel like just another file number, Trevino Law Firm treats each client as an individual deserving of attention and respect. Although we approach all of our cases in this manner, we know that victims of negligent security in particular are in need of compassion and sensitivity as we work to secure their claim and ensure they get the care they need. Darlene Trevino works tirelessly with opposing attorneys and insurance companies to negotiate favorable outcomes for her clients.
Another standout feature of Trevino Law Firm is our fluency in both Spanish and English possessed by our attorney and staff. This makes the firm particularly adept at serving the diverse communities of Palmdale. Regardless of your primary language, you can expect clear, concise, and effective legal representation.
What You Need to Prove in a Negligent Security Case
To win a negligent security case, you generally need to establish:
- Duty of Care: Show that the property owner had a duty to ensure reasonable security measures.
- Breach of Duty: Demonstrate that the property owner failed to uphold this duty.
- Causation: Prove that the failure directly resulted in your injury or loss.
- Damages: Validate the physical or emotional harm you’ve sustained.
Property owners and their insurers will do all they can to deflect responsibility onto the person who committed the theft, assault, or other harm. At Trevino Law Firm, we know the law and what it takes to hold other parties accountable for their role in an attack that might otherwise not have happened.
