Philadelphia Inadequate Security Attorneys

Apartment Buildings | High-Rise Buildings | Commercial Buildings | Elevators

If you were injured on someone else's property because they failed to provide adequate security, resulting in a mugging or physical attack, you may have a claim for compensation for any losses you suffered. In Pennsylvania, the owner of a residential or commercial property has a duty to take reasonable steps to minimize the risk of injury to visitors. When the owner knew or had reason to know that you were exposed to risk of injury if there wasn't adequate security, you can seek financial recovery for any losses you incurred. At Metzger & Kleiner, we have more than 40 years of personal injury experience and represent people throughout the Philadelphia metro area and the Lehigh Valley.

Our Representation in Cases Involving Negligent Security

Premises liability law requires that individuals and businesses/organizations, such as condominium associations and employers, take reasonable measures to ensure the safety of workers and visitors. Premises liability cases can involve a broad range of situations:
  • Our attorneys represented a McDonald's restaurant customer who was shot late at night while the employees were protected by bulletproof glass.
  • Daycare negligence and failure to supervise children in schools puts children at risk for accidents and kidnapping. We represented the family of a boy with disabilities who was unsupervised, left school and drowned.
  • If a parking lot has inadequate lighting and an assailant takes advantage of the poor lighting to commit a rape or murder, the property management or owner may be responsible.
  • Our client, making a delivery while working, was shot. Our lawyers recovered money for him from the company where he was injured. He also was entitled to damages under workers' compensation.
  • If event organizers and premises management don't provide adequate security we will file claims and lawsuits for clients injured in fights at clubs, sporting events and concerts; or in sexual assaults or beatings in hotels, workplaces or parking ramps.
  • Nursing homes, hospitals, prisons and schools unfortunately may be sites of institutional assault or institutional abuse due to poorly screened employees or faulty security mechanisms allowing intruders to breach security.
Negligent or inadequate security, such as poor lighting, negligent security officers or other insufficient security measures can provide a breeding ground for crime, such as theft, rape, assault and other attacks that could have been prevented if proper security had been implemented.
