Injuries Caused By Negligent Security
Being attacked is a traumatic experience that can cause severe physical, mental and emotional injuries. If you have been assaulted, you may rightly feel afraid, angry and vulnerable — particularly if the attack occurred in a place where you should feel safe such as an apartment building, hotel, private business or parking structure.
At Maples, Nix & Diesselhorst in Oklahoma City, our lawyers are here for you. Our proven assault injury lawyers have spent their careers advocating for the rights of people injured by others’ negligence. If you have questions about your rights and your options for legal recourse, we can help.
Standing With You For Justice
If you or someone you love has been assaulted or attacked, you likely know that you may press criminal charges against the perpetrator. However, many people do not realize that they may be able to pursue a civil claim for damages as well.
Landlords and other property owners are required to show a duty of care for residents and visitors, which means they must take reasonable steps to ensure the property is safe. When inadequate security or other unsafe property conditions contribute to an assault, the property owner may be held liable under the law and required to pay damages, including medical bills.
We are here to provide legal advice, medical consulting and emotional support if you have been assaulted because of:
- Insufficient security
- Poor lighting
- Broken locks or fences
- Failure to warn guests of unsafe conditions
