Inadequate Security Cases in Kansas City

Are you the victim of a preventable crime?

Many times, crimes of violence such as rape, assault, murder and others could have been prevented by proper and reasonable security measures taken by property owners. Most of us have seen or heard of cases of violent crimes being committed in hotels, parking lots, stores, apartment buildings, garages and other commonly used places. Too often, crimes committed in such locations are not punished.

Sometimes the guilty party is never caught or for a variety of reasons, is not successfully prosecuted. Our firm believes that people have a right to their own safety while using another's property. Property owners should take reasonable precautions to ensure that their businesses are safe and secure. At Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott, we strongly feel that those that are responsible for a crime of violence through their negligence should be held liable for their failure to properly act.

The property owner may not have been the one to commit the crime, but their failure to take proper precautions when a criminal act could have been foreseen, can make them liable. An experienced Kansas City personal injury lawyer can work with you to see if you have a case for negligent security involving violent crime.

Negligent Security Cases

A property owner may be negligent if there was a reasonable expectation that a crime could be committed and they failed to act. Inadequate security personnel or insufficient lighting can make a crime easier to commit.

All of the following may make an area unsafe:

  • Improper control of keys
  • Design of facilities
  • Other physical security measures

Proper background checks on personnel could have led to the prevention of a crime of violence.

We can investigate what occurred in your case, as doing so may reveal many facts that show the property owner knew there were reasons to take reasonable security measures. A victim of violent crime can suffer immense physical and emotional distress. Just compensation may help lead you back to the life you need and desire.
