Elsmere Attorney for Injuries Resulting From Negligent or Improper Security

Muggings | Physical Assault | Sexual Assault | Third-Party Attacks

Under the laws of Delaware, the owners of residential or commercial property have a duty to take reasonable steps to minimize the risk of injury to legal visitors. This duty includes providing adequate security if the owner knows or should have known of a risk of physical attack anywhere on the property. In areas with a history of criminal activity or where a physical attack may be reasonably foreseeable, property holders or managers must provide adequate security to minimize the risk of assault or mugging. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a physical attack on someone else’s property, we can help.

The Responsibility of a Property Owner to Provide Adequate Security

The law requires that the owner or manager of a property take all reasonable steps to ensure the safety of anyone legally on the premises. If the owner/manager knows or should know of the risk of muggings, physical assault or sexual assault, measures need to be taken to address the problem. These measures can involve the installation of security cameras, the hiring of security guards or limiting access to the premises through the use of keys or codes.

We handle all matters related to injury claims arising out of poor or negligent security on residential or commercial premises. We will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your injury, including a review of all prior criminal activity in the vicinity of your attack. We will interview witnesses and travel to the scene of the attack if necessary.

Once we have gathered, evaluated and preserved all relevant evidence, we will prepare and file all documents necessary to pursue full and fair compensation for your injuries. We will also be strong advocates for you in any hearings or proceedings.
