Inadequate Security

National retailers and corporations, as well as businesses and property owners, can face litigation for criminal acts, such as murder and assault, that occur on their premises when victims claim that the property owner could have taken preventative steps.

The inadequate security defense lawyers at Bush + Ramirez are distinguished in this area of law. Our attorneys have been sought for counsel by, for example, national corporations who’ve seen catastrophic tragedies unfold at their retail locations.

Our attorneys are well-positioned to defend companies and property owners because of their extensive trial experience and knowledge of inadequate security law.

We work with our clients to develop a smart case strategy and determine whether the matter warrants an early settlement or an aggressive defense through trial. In many cases, our attorneys will meet clients, witnesses, and investigators onsite to promptly evaluate a claim and research any implications of negligence or liability.

We have:

  • Obtained summary judgment on premise owner’s behalf involving a claim of inadequate security as the result of a fatal shooting occurring at the premise owner’s parking lot. Plaintiffs pled for a recovery in excess of $16 million.
  • Defended a property owner concerning a targeted murder of a tenant.
  • Defended multiple apartment complexes for inadequate security related to alleged sexual assaults.
