Denver Negligent Security Attorney
Being the victim of a violent crime can be a life-altering experience, leaving you with a sense of no personal security. However, these situations are often prevented by competent security patrolling public areas. If you’ve been the victim of a violent crime, the business and/or property owner may be held liable for their negligence in employing proper security measures on the grounds.
Prevention Is the Key
Property and business owners are obligated to take reasonable measures to ensure the safety of their visitors and employees. If they don’t take reasonable measures and they don’t warn people of possible danger, they can be held liable for their negligence.
Protect Your Rights

Inadequate security is commonly found in:
- Parking lots
- Theme parks
- Banks or ATMs
- College or university campuses
- Dorm rooms
- Sports arenas
- Shopping centers
- Nursing homes
- Assisted living facilities
- Office buildings
- Bars or restaurants
It is a reasonable expectation that businesses and property owners take adequate security measures to protect your safety while you are visiting their premises. Consequences of inadequate security include pedestrian accidents, wrongful death, and brain injuries. In addition to physical injuries, violent crimes also cause life-long emotional and psychological trauma.
Don’t Go It Alone
It is difficult for someone to find out on their own if there is negligence in security. Hire a legal team that has the experience and resources necessary to investigate and uncover issues that the property or business owner knew or should have known and failed to address.
Contributing factors can include:
- Improperly trained security personnel
- Not providing security in an area known for crime
- Inadequate lighting in parking lots or stairwells
- Not conducting background checks on employees
- Failure to provide security or warning visitors when there has been a pattern of criminal activity
- Non-functioning security cameras
- Malfunctioning or non-existent locks
Violent crimes such as robbery rape, assault, and battery can be prevented with adequate security.
To hold the responsible party liable for negligent security, we must prove that they failed to take measures necessary to limit the possibility or prevent the crime. Jordan Law understands the nuances of Denver legal statutes and how to apply them to your specific situation.
It’s common to think that conviction of the perpetrators of the crime is necessary to pursue compensation. This is not the case. You can pursue a civil case independently of a criminal case. If you are injured due to someone else’s negligence you deserve to be compensated.
Jordan Law aggressively pursues compensation for injuries, pain, suffering, lost wages, loss of future wages, and medical bills. People need to be held accountable for their action or inaction.
