Negligent Security Attorneys Minnesota
Have you been attacked and injured on another party’s property and you believe the incident occured because the property owner failed to secure the premises?

It is the duty of property owners, including hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, parking lots, apartments, and so forth to ensure their premises are reasonable safe for their employees, customers, and tenants. Although the definition of “reasonable” varies by state, in general it means that they should provide proper security measures that attempt to prevent criminal misconduct. This is especially true, when they are aware of potential security concerns, but fail to do anything about them. For example, if an apartment owner fails to fix the outside lighting; thereby causing the parking lot to be very dark, and a person is attacked and assaulted, the owner may be liable.
Regardless of what happened, if negligent security is a possible factor in your case, the negligent security attorneys in Minnesota want to know about it. Please call JOHNSTON | MARTINEAU PLLP to find out how you may be able to hold the owner responsible for your injuries.
Understanding Negligent Security
Negligent security liability cases tend to involve some kind of violent act towards a customer, tennant, or otherwise guest that would have been reasonably foreseeable by the manager or owner based upon other criminal activities on, or within the nearby vicinity, of the property. Rather than taking various security measures, such as fixing the lighting, installing cameras, or hiring a security guard, the property owner did nothing.
If the following apply to your case, please call the negligent security attorneys Minnesota residents recommend at JOHNSTON | MARTINEAU PLLP.

Negligent security is a relatively new area of personal injury law, creating challenges for attorneys seeking compensation on behalf of their clients. Yet the lack of proper security measures being taken at apartments, parking ramps and college campuses can result in serious injury.
After an evening of Christmas shopping, a 44-year-old female was heading to her car with an armload of purchases. Due to inadequate lighting in the parking lot, she was unable to see a large pothole and stepped into it. She suffered injury to her shoulder and hip. After being turned away by several other attorneys, she retained Christopher Johnston who, after a lengthy battle, secured a nearly six-figure settlement.
When public places are not properly lit, accidents can and do occur. Such places also are susceptible to becoming venues for assault and robbery.
