Negligent Security Injuries Archives

Take action if you were injured on Black Friday

Black Friday is the one day of the year when shopping is especially dangerous. People turn out in droves to purchase items on their wishlist at incredible discounts, and the desire to get those deals sometimes brings out the worst in people. Pushing, shoving and serious disorder during these sales can lead to accidents that cause injuries.

How security personnel respond to panics matters

One of the important roles security personnel can play is responding when events occur which could impact the safety of people in the area they are working security in. One example of such an event is a crowd panicking. In such a panic, security workers may be able to help calm things down and keep people safe.

Negligent security and premises liability in New York

When New Yorkers set out to run an errand or visit a friend, personal safety is usually not a big worry. Most premises appear to be safe with smooth pavement, unbroken steps and other measures. However, there is a chance you might not be as protected as you believe you are on another party's premises. One little-known area of concern is inadequate or outright negligent premises security.

Inadequate security can lead to injurious incident

Security is a crucial protection for people who are going to some events. When event coordinators are planning these events, they have a duty to make sure that the security is paramount. They have a duty to ensure that the people who attend the event, whether it is a massive sale or a concert, will remain safe. When proper security isn't in place, people who attend the event are at risk of being injured.

What factors matter when planning security for events?

When people go to a special event, such as a concert or even a highly anticipated sale, they expect to remain safe. One way that this can happen is if the event organizers plan to have adequate security at the event. Failing to have adequate security can mean that attendees suffer injuries.

Shopping injuries can be life altering

Shopping venue owners have a duty to keep patrons safe from injuries. Doing so means that they must take several points into account. Not only do they have to think about the physical attributes of the premises, such as the flooring and shelving, but they also have to consider the security of the patrons. Without thinking about security, stores can often miss one of the possible ways that patrons can suffer injuries.

Can lack of security lead to injuries?

At any public event or place, keeping people who are there safe should be a top priority. When the organizers of an event or the owners of a business don't make security a priorty, it is possible that people who are there could be injured. People who are injured because of lax security can opt to seek compensation for those injuries.
