Did Inadequate Security Result in Your Attack?
Many people who are injured in an attack do not realize that they may have a right to compensation for their injuries. Although the State may hold the attacker criminally responsible, we can help you hold the property owner responsible for failing to keep their property safe.

Since the firm’s founding in 1978, we have been dedicated to helping people obtain full compensation for their injuries. Contact us to evaluate if you have a case for premises liability and to understand your rights.
There are certain areas where attackers congregate for purse snatching or gang activity. It is a property owner’s responsibility to keep their property reasonably safe for people who have a right to be there, and this responsibility includes keeping the property safe from this type of activity. While property owners cannot get rid of every attacker out there, they can make the property unappealing for criminal activity. In certain areas, this means having security cameras visible, having spot lights or other necessary lighting, having security guards on duty to make rounds, and other security measures.
If a property owner is negligent in providing adequate security and someone is injured or attacked on the property as a result, the property owner can be held civilly liable for medical expenses, lost wages and other damages incurred by the individual who was attacked.
We also handle other types of premises liability cases, including cases involving slip and fall and other accidents on someone else’s property.
If you have been injured due to inadequate or negligent security on someone else’s personal or commercial property, contact the law firm of Burnside Law Firm for a free consultation to discuss your case.
