Negligent Security Lawyer

Leading Negligent Security Attorney Based in Philadelphia

When you are lawfully on someone else’s property, you have a reasonable expectation it will be safe. This is true whether you’re going to the grocery store, parking in a lot, or having a beer with friends. When a business owner fails to offer reasonable, adequate security for their customers or visitors, and it results in a serious injury or death, the victim or their family can make a claim for negligent security. Examples of negligent security claims include:

  • Fights at bars, restaurants, or nightclubs that cause injury to innocent bystanders;
  • Assaults that occur in parking lots;
  • Attacks by unrestrained animals; and
  • Injuries suffered to residents of apartment buildings and college dorms with broken door locks or insufficient check-in policies.

We specialize in complex cases like these to ensure that our clients get the compensation they deserve from their negligent security claim.  


What Is Negligent Security?

Negligent security is when a business or property owner fails to provide adequate security that protects their customers or visitors from harm. This security lapse can result in physical or sexual assault, kidnapping, robbery, and even death, and the property owner must be held accountable. To do this, you can file a negligent security lawsuit with help from Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Holloway.

When collecting evidence for negligent security claims, there are several key steps. First, our attorneys obtain and preserve the important evidence, such as photos and video surveillance. From there, we consult with and retain the leading experts to provide their professional opinion on matters such as insufficient or broken cameras, lighting, alarm systems, gates, locks, inadequate or improperly trained personnel (such as bouncers or security teams), and more. We also dig deep into the history of the property and whether previous claims against the property owner were addressed to ensure lawful visitors are always reasonably safe.
