Do Buildings And Venues Need Security Personnel?
Property owners are required by law to make sure their premises are safe. If a visitor, patron, employee or another individual is hurt as a result of inadequately maintained property, it is often the case that the owner can be held legally responsible.
In recent years, one of the most common causes of preventable injuries is the lack of security in places that need it. At time guards, watchmen or other personnel are negligent; at other times, no security is employed at all, thereby jeopardizing the safety of any visitors to a given site or event.
If you have been hurt under such circumstances, the attorneys at Kyle Law Firm can help.

When Is Negligent Security A Factor In An Injury?
Our firm is adept in recovering financial restitution for those who have been injured in a wide range of venues as a result of inadequate security. Such sites include:
- Swimming pools (with insufficiently trained lifeguards)
- Nightclubs and bars
- Concerts and music festivals
- Apartment buildings
- Gas stations (which are unusually prone to violent crime)
- Construction sites
- Sports arenas and similar venues
Wherever there are crowds, there is a risk of crowd-related injury or violent crime that can lead to injury. Property owners have an obligation to take precautions and put security in place when needed. When they fail to do so, it is important to bring them to justice.
