Premises Liability

Property owners owe a duty of care to those who enter their premises.  Failure to remove dangers or maintain the upkeep of a retail store, office building, parking garage, parking lot, or home creates liability for property owners.  Further, owners or managers of retail stores, office buildings, and apartment complexes can be held liable for injuries that occur as a result of assaults due to a lack of proper security.  In each instance, a review must be undertaken regarding what measures should have been put in place to deter or prevent injuries and crime.

At the law office of Delgado & Romanik, our attorneys work with safety experts, security consultants, accident investigators, structural engineers, and other professionals in exposing negligence on the part of property owners.  If you've been seriously injured due to a slip-and-fall accident or a criminal assault, call 386-492-8694 to speak to a lawyer at Delgado & Romanik today.

Criminal Assault — Inadequate Security 

The personal safety of of every patron should be a concern for retail stores, parking garages, office buildings, and apartment complexes. Especially in areas where crime is a concern, failure to provide security cameras, a front desk guard, or require people to enter through a secure door exposes patrons to the risk of a criminal attack. In these circumstances, the issue is one of foreseeability: Given the environment or location of a building, parking garage, or store, are there foreseeable security risks a property owner should have taken measures to counteract? Our premises liability attorneys find that lapses in planning and building management play a role in criminal assaults on our clients.
