7 Mistakes That Will Ruin Your Personal Injury Case
Enter your information below to download our free legal guide.
When you’re on someone else’s property, you expect for it to be free of hazards and dangers. Certain things sometimes, however, are not taken care of, leaving you exposed to situations and hazards that could leave you to be seriously harmed. Sometimes, it’s lack of maintenance to a property that can cause injuries. Other times, it’s the absence of security that should be there to prevent incidents from happening. Our Phoenix Negligent Security Lawyers want to fight for your rights to full and fair compensation.
The term negligent security can apply to a variety of cases. For you to understand if you have a case or not, here are some examples of incidents that involve negligent security:
A young woman was walking to her car after shopping at a mall and the parking lot was dimly lit. On her walk back to her car she was mugged at gunpoint and beaten pretty badly. Her purse was stolen, her car was stolen, and she had a cracked skull. She was badly injured and needed emergency medical care. Had the parking lot been better lit and perhaps had a patrol been present, she would’ve been spared this harm.
Two women who lived in an apartment complex together had a stranger break into their apartment and sexually assault each of them. They were fortunate to survive the altercation but they suffered serious psychological trauma. They had hard times building relationships after this and needed to break their lease to move to somewhere else that they really couldn’t afford but that was a more secure spot for them to live. If the property manager had made the effort to put security measures in place to prevent incidents like this from happening, these women would be much better off.
At a bed-and-breakfast, there was construction on the building going on. There weren’t gates surrounding the construction site and guests unknowingly walked too close to the construction. One man was hit by falling debris after a demolition of a structure which left him with permanent brain damage. The property managers knew that they were leaving a lot of space for their guests to get injured because they hadn’t set up any safety precautions to keep guests away from the construction zone. They would be liable for this man’s injuries.

There are a lot of places in which a negligent security case might happen. Some are more frequently seen by our Phoenix negligent security lawyers than others.
Hotels can be liable if you were hurt on their property. You could be at a gas station or a shopping mall or a grocery store (or any public space like those) and encounter an incident of negligent security. A lot of cases have happened at university dormitories, too. We even see them in hospitals and daycares and nursing homes. So many negligent security cases happen at sporting arenas, as well.
If you believe that you have a case, we want you to reach out as soon as possible to our Phoenix negligent security lawyers to set up your first consultation. We will give a detailed analysis of your incident and determine whether or not you are entitled to compensation for the damages you’ve suffered after having been through this. Don’t hesitate as these are time sensitive cases.
The claim starts immediately after you’ve been hurt. We want you to get medical attention as soon as you possibly can either from an urgent care facility or from the emergency room. Then as soon as possible we want you to call our Phoenix negligent security lawyers. There are several things that need to happen in order for you to be able to bring a claim.
The first thing that needs to happen is your lawyers need to prove that you were on the property at the time of the incident so that they can say that that property manager was the liable party. From there, you need to then be able to prove that at the time of the incident the person you are calling the liable party was indeed the owner of the property. Next, you need to set in stone that the property owner knew of the hazards on the property but they did nothing to fix it and make it safer. Once all of that is put together, we need to show that, because of what the property owner did or didn’t do for that matter, you were harmed. If they behaved differently you would have been spared harm. Our phoenix negligent security lawyers will guide you through this process every step of the way.
Once you’re able to prove these things and pin down a liable party, we can go forth with building a claim and preparing to get you settled with fair compensation. Please know that the liable party is not going to provide this compensation out of their own pocket. The insurance company that represents them is going to be financially responsible for giving you the compensation that you deserve.
When putting a value on a claim like this, we look at two types of damages: economic damages and non-economic damages.
Economic damages refer to all of the ways that having been involved in this incident has cost you money. It likely cost you money to go to the doctor and get the treatment that you need, especially if you needed emergency treatment such as surgery. It likely cost you money if you’ve had to miss work and burn through your sick time because you were recovering. It also likely cost you money if you can’t return to the same type of work that you did before because you were too hurt to do so.
Economic damages have more to do with the ways that your life has changed and been affected. We will look at your pain and suffering that you’ve had to endure and will continue to have to endure. We will see how your life has been impacted since physically, emotionally and mentally. We take into consideration what it has done to your mental health or what it is done to the health of your relationships with people surrounding you.
Let’s break down an example so you can get a better understanding:
A woman who was beat in a parking lot and had her car, wallet, drivers license etc. stolen from her is going to experience a lot of damage. You have the damage of having to recover all of these types of items. You may never see that car again and you deserve compensation for that. She also is entitled to compensation for any medical treatment she needed for her cracked skull after having been beaten in the parking lot. She deserves compensation for her therapy if she experienced depression and or anxiety or post-traumatic stress. Suppose that she never goes shopping alone again and that puts a huge impact on how she does her daily chores. We look at all of the ways that she has been damaged from this incident and we fight to make sure that the settlement she receives is full and fair.
