Premises Liability Lawyer

When you are injured or harmed on another person's property, you may be entitled to damages if the property owner's negligence led to your injury in some way. This particular form of legal accountability ― otherwise known as premises liability ― may apply in a variety of circumstances, including situations in which a customer is injured in a store or a tenant is hurt due to a landlord's negligent conduct.

At Overby Law Office, P.C., we understand the intricacies of premises liability law, and we will do everything possible to help ensure your rights are protected following such injuries. Attorney C. Frederick Overby will use his 30 years of legal experience to personally investigate your case and answer any questions you may have.

Criminal Attacks And Inadequate Security

Business owners and landlords must take reasonable precautions to protect their customers and tenants from harm. Not only does this responsibility require owners to address issues such as unsafe conditions and structural flaws, but security measures as well.

In fact, if property owners and landlords employ substandard safety measures, they may be held legally accountable for any injuries attributed to criminal attacks on their property ― such as muggings or assaults in stores, malls, hotels or apartment buildings. Improper security precautions may include, but are certainly not limited to:

  • Inadequate lighting in parking lots or building entrances
  • Broken or substandard locks on doors
  • Insufficient or poorly trained personnel or guards
  • Inoperable security systems or cameras
  • Failure to employ modern security technologies, such as modern key entry systems

If you or a loved one has been injured in an attack and you believe the property owner employed inadequate security measures, you may be entitled to damages. Additionally, if a family member passed away as a result of the attack, you may be able to bring a wrongful death claim.

However, there are many factors that may be considered when determining whether or not a property owner's security is sufficient, which is why it is best to seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney.
