Security negligence is not acceptable, regardless of any circumstances. Many businesses are open evening hours and some are even open 24 hours a day with some operating in high crime areas. Companies are expanding their hours to accommodate more customers. Unfortunately, many crimes occur under the cover of darkness when criminals prefer to come out.
Security and security negligence becomes much more of an issue at night. Many businesses that stay open at night find it necessary to hire a security guard but it is very expensive to hire a guard during the evening hours, as it may be as much as twice the amount as a daytime security guard. That is no excuse for security negligence.
If you or a loved one is injured in a business due to negligent security, it may be in your best interest to contact an injury lawyer experienced in cases of premises liability.
If you have ever entered a business during late evening hours, you many notice that there are usually very few employees working and they may not even be at the checkout counter. If you or a loved one is assaulted or suffers a personal injury at a business where there should have been a security guard on duty, the business may be held liable for failing to protect their employees or customers. It may be in your best interest to talk to an experienced negligent security injury lawyer for a case evaluation. Contact Attorney Lawrence K. Land and let him explain your legal rights.
