Thousands of people are injured every year due to property managers and owners providing inadequate security to the premises under their charge. If you or someone you love has suffered an injury, including an assault, in a parking lot, building or other area, the Oklahoma City inadequate security attorneys at Hasbrook & Hasbrook can hold the owner or manager liable for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration made a number of recommendations in 1998 to protect the safety and health of patrons and employees, including:
- The increase of staff during periods of high risk periods
- The reduction of store hours
- The installation of adequate lighting
- Drop safes
- Silent alarms
- Bullet-resistant enclosures to provide added protection for clerks
- And more
Sadly, many of these recommendations have been ignored, and employees and patrons alike have suffered the consequences.
Injuries suffered as a result of inadequate security are often severe and can dramatically impact the quality of life of victims. Our Oklahoma City inadequate security attorneys can help you obtain compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and more. In most cases, we would have to prove that the defendants knew, or at the very least should have known, about potential threats such as criminal activity in the area, as well as the fact that lighting, security patrols, windows, locks, doors, and other hardware were inadequate for the job. We have an understanding of issues such as these, the laws associated with inadequate security, and the willingness to fight hard on your behalf to obtain justice and compensation.
If you believe that you or someone you love has been injured as a result of inadequate security, contact us today for a consultation. Your consultation is free and you will not have to pay a penny for the services of Hasbrook and Hasbrook unless we obtain compensation on your behalf.
