Memphis Negligent Security Attorney Fighting For Compensation On Your Behalf

Memphis Negligent Security Attorney

Experiencing an attack, sexual assault, or robbery on someone else's property is a traumatic event that no one should have to endure. Unlike premises liability issues  where an accident occurs due to unsafe conditions, negligent security cases typically involve violent crimes that could have been prevented with proper safety measures. Property owners who fail to provide adequate security, such as proper lighting, surveillance cameras, or even security personnel, might be held responsible for the harm you have suffered. 

At Cook & Cossio, our team is prepared to fight for your rights and hold the at-fault parties accountable. We believe that you should be able to recover from your injuries without the added stress of financial burdens. Our compassionate Memphis negligent security attorneys have successfully recovered millions for our clients, so you can be confident that we have the experience and knowledge to handle your case.

Understanding Negligent Security

Negligent security is when property owners put people at risk by failing to implement necessary protections for their visitors or patrons. This isn't limited to homes but includes shopping centers like Oak Court Mall and the Wolfchase Galleria, parking lots, gas stations, convenience stores, apartment complexes, hotels, and even public parks. When a property lacks proper security protocols, it can become a target for criminal activities, leaving innocent people vulnerable to harm.

Common examples include:

  • Inadequate lighting: Dark areas increase the risk of assaults or robberies.
  • Lack of surveillance cameras: Deterring crimes or identifying perpetrators without cameras is harder.
  • Insufficient or poorly trained security personnel: Untrained or insufficient security staff can fail to manage dangers effectively.
  • Broken locks or gates: These offer easy access for intruders or criminals.
  • Unmonitored entry points: Doors and entrances that aren’t watched can become easy entryways for criminal activities.
  • Failure to warn about known dangers: Property owners must inform guests about potential hazards.

Property owners have an obligation to implement measures that protect individuals from harm. When they fail to do so, they need to be held accountable so that such negligence doesn't continue and victims get the justice they deserve.

What to Do if You've Been Attacked or Injured on a Commercial Property

Experiencing an attack or injury on a commercial property can be incredibly distressing. Knowing the steps to take afterward can make a significant difference in giving you the best chance to seek justice. While it’s essential to focus on your immediate well-being, you should consider several key actions to protect your rights and build a strong case. 

To maximize your chances of recovering fair compensation, we recommend that you:

  • Seek immediate medical attention: Prioritize your health. Seeking prompt medical care stops injuries from getting worse, could save your life, and puts your care in the hands of a capable party.
  • Report the incident: Contact the property manager or owner and report the attack or injury. Make sure that the report includes all pertinent details, as this will create an official record of the incident.
  • Call the police: A police report can serve as critical documentation. Provide the responding officers with as much information as possible, including any witnesses and details of what occurred.
