If you have been robbed, assaulted, or otherwise victimized in a residential or commercial building, you might have an action against a security company and/or the property owner if they failed to implement reasonable security measures.
Depending on the particular circumstances, the owners of an apartment building, store, parking garage, hotel, or other premises may be liable for failing to repair broken locks, failing to provide adequate lighting, failing to provide adequate security, etc.
For a negligent security action to be successful, the investigation must include a detailed analysis of the property’s history of criminal activity.
Seiden & Kaufman has extensive experience handling negligent security cases and has obtained millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements in security negligence matters.
In an action in New York County against a residential property owner, Seiden & Kaufman obtained a $2.5 million jury verdict for our client who was sexually assaulted due to the assailant’s ability to enter the premises through broken entrance doors.
