Negligent Security Lawyer in Chicago
Going to a club, movie, restaurant, sporting event, or any other public activity shouldn’t result in injury due to inadequate security.
You and a friend decide to go to the new club in town with high hopes of getting in. Upon arriving, there was no line; you felt lucky, at least until you got inside and noticed that the place was crowded to the walls. After you order a drink and take in a plate of appetizers, a fight breaks out in a back corner. You wait for security to do something, but they aren’t around. You decide you have had enough so you decide to leave. It has turned dark since you arrived and you notice the parking lot has no lights. While searching for your car you feel a blow to the back of your head and then black out.
If you don’t know what negligent security is, the above example should give you a good idea.
Going to a club, movie, restaurant, sporting event, or any other public activity shouldn’t result in injury due to inadequate security. And it isn’t just enough security personnel; it could also mean inadequate lighting, failure to trim hedges, or provide adequate crowd control.
Getting the help you need
Too often negligent security results in violence, leaving you feeling victimized twice. Not only are you a victim of violence but a victim of negligence as well. The Willens & Baez understand the laws and statutes governing security. We protect your rights and claim to compensation from the property owner. We begin the process for you while you recover from your injuries.
In the case of negligent security, the business or company at fault probably won’t respond to your claim unless you file a negligent security case against them. We know how to use the facts, the police reports, and your medical reports as evidence to show them and their insurance company that their security was lax in one way or another. We investigate the ownership of the establishment to determine liability. If it is a corporation we can seek redress from the company. If the owners of the corporation broke the law through their negligence we may be able to also involve the individual owners as well.
