        Were you injured on someone else’s property due to the property owner’s carelessness or negligence? This type of injury is called negligent security, and if you’ve been hurt under these circumstances, you may have a negligent security lawsuit. Please contact our Kansas negligent security lawyers right away to talk about your situation and review the details. We want to protect your rights so you can get the compensation you deserve.

        Defining Negligent Security

        What does a negligent security case actually look like? Look at these examples to see if any of these scenarios are similar to what you have experienced. While an injury that occurs on someone else’s property due to the property owner’s negligence can occur in many different scenarios, these may give you some idea of how negligent security is defined.

        1. A woman’s employer only provides free employee parking in the garage it owns across the street from the company’s address. The garage is very poorly lit and there are no cameras or security guards. She voices concern to a supervisor that the garage does not feel safe. One dark evening in the winter, she is knocked down and kicked as she approaches her car in the garage. Her vehicle and purse are stolen, and she is seriously injured in the assault. She later learns this is not the first carjacking to occur in the garage, and her employer has been aware of that fact. The woman is a victim of negligent security because her employer did not take measures to secure the parking garage.
        2. A college freshman gets mugged in his college dorm stairwell by an intruder that got in through a side door that does not close properly and has no security cameras or motion-activated lighting. He is injured and traumatized and considers leaving the school. The student is a victim of negligent security because the school’s administration is aware of the faulty door yet didn’t take steps to replace it and increase security around the dorm.

        If your experience is somewhat similar and you’ve been injured because a property owner acted negligently, we urge you to call our Kansas negligent security lawyers right away. We have the experience to identify the liable party and pursue justice on your behalf.

        Just a few examples of negligent security include:

        • Assault
        • Robbery/Mugging
        • Sexual assault

        Does your experience fall somewhere on this list? If you aren’t sure if you have a case, please call our Kansas negligent security lawyers as soon as possible to learn your rights to compensation.

        Where Does Negligent Security Happen?

        Negligent security cases vary greatly because this category of personal injury covers such a broad range of circumstances in which a property owner can be liable for damages suffered by a visitor. Typical places people suffer from negligent security include shopping malls, gas stations, and stores. The owner of a resort can be liable if guests are injured while at the facility. Schools and colleges can also be places that people are harmed due to negligent security; even hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted living centers can be unsafe. Entertainment venues such as concert halls and sports arenas may be negligent in providing security for their patrons, too. The possibilities are seemingly endless. Our Kansas negligent security lawyers are dedicated to helping the victims of negligent security get the compensation they deserve. Our lawyers know how to sift through the details of your situation and advise you on the strength of your case. We will help you take on the liable party’s insurance company to give you the best chance at recovering fair and full compensation for your injuries and suffering.

        What Happens During a Negligent Security Case

        If you’ve been hurt due to negligent security, the first step you should take is to seek medical care. Not only does this provide you with the treatment you need for your injuries, it creates a record of what you’ve gone through that will strengthen any case you may have.

        We strongly recommend that the next step you take after getting medical care is to call our Kansas negligent security lawyers. This will enable your legal team to get started on the necessary steps to build a solid case for your claim. This includes proof that you were harmed, who owned the property, where the incident happened, and that the owner was aware of the possibility for harm but did not take action to prevent it. Your lawyers will also need to prove you were on the property when you were injured. Handling all of these elements properly requires diligence and experience. Our Kansas negligent security lawyers know the many facets of negligent security cases and are committed to fighting for your rights.

        The source of compensation for damages caused by your injuries will be the property owner’s insurance company, not the property owner directly. Dealing with insurance companies is a challenge unto itself that requires experience. Our Kansas negligent security lawyers know what to expect from these companies and how to handle the tactics they will inevitably employ to try to get you to agree to an unjustly low settlement. Don’t let the insurance company push you around. Call our lawyers today.

        What Kind of Damages Are Available in Negligent Security Cases?

        It’s important to know that there are two types of damages addressed in seeking compensation. These are economic damages and non-economic damages. Let’s look at how each of these contributes to the value of your case.

        Economic damages include things like bills for medical treatment and procedures, hospital bills, expenses for psychiatric appointments, counseling, physical therapy, and medications. Past expenses can be tallied up, and future expenses can be estimated for ongoing treatments like counseling and physical therapy, as can work missed or work you will miss in the future due to your injuries.

        Non-economic damages are not as easy to assess. They involve placing a value on less tangible losses, such as how your injury has impacted your life, now and in the future. This may include loss of quality of life because you are left in chronic pain, or now have limited mobility. It may include anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder from which you now suffer. 

        Applying Value to a Negligent Security Example

        Let’s consider what damages the student who was mugged in the college dorm might be entitled to. He suffered two broken ribs and a concussion. These injuries resulted in six weeks of missed work and school. He still experiences nightmares from the incident, which cause him anxiety during the day and require ongoing counseling and medication.

        The student’s economic damages would be the cost of his emergency room visit, follow-up doctor visits, lost wages, counseling, and medication expenses. His non-economic damages would be the anxiety and loss of quality of life both during recovery as well as due to pain and suffering from the ongoing nightmares he suffers from as a result of the incident.

        Mistakes to Avoid in a Negligent Security Case

        One of the common mistakes people make when they are hurt due to negligent security is not seeing a doctor. This can not only prevent you from getting critical medical care, but if you later make a negligent security case based on your injuries, insurance companies can, and will, use your failure or delay in seeking medical attention against you. They will suggest that you were not badly injured during the incident, or that the incident didn’t even happen. This is an unbelievably frustrating and infuriating position to be in. It’s imperative that you don’t give the insurance company the opening to try this tactic. This is why it is crucial to get medical treatment right away if you are injured in a negligent security case. Don’t second guess yourself and worry about looking foolish, go to the hospital. Then call our Kansas negligent security lawyers to fight for your rights.

        Another trick insurance companies try is to get you on the phone to record a statement of the incident. They will act as though they are your friend and have your best interests in mind. Don’t be fooled into helping them. By providing a recorded statement, you are giving the insurance company yet another opening to turn the information you give them against you. No matter how friendly they may seem, remember they are trained to get information from you that they can use to devalue your claim. They may even manage to have your case thrown out entirely, depending on the information you give them when trying to be cooperative. This is why it’s so important to call our Kansas negligent security lawyers. They’ve seen the insurance companies’ tricks and know how to protect you from them.

        A third tactic to watch out for is an initial lowball settlement offer from the insurance company. You may be thinking that a guarantee of some money is better than taking your chances, but again, insurance companies are trained to steer you to go along with what benefits them, not you. You already know that what benefits the insurance company is paying out as little as possible in damages. This is another reason not to speak to insurance companies. Not only will they try to convince you that you should accept a meager offer, they will use anything you say to make sure the value of your claim really does drop as low as possible.
