New Jersey Negligent Security Attorneys
Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq have a long history of successfully handling personal injury cases involving clients who were seriously injured directly attributable to inadequate security. Property owners who own and operate property are legally responsible for the safety of those who are on their property. They must safely maintain the property, in an attempt to protect people from foreseeable dangerous situations.
Property owners are legally responsible for the injuries that tenants, guests, and customers sustain while on their property. The absence of adequate security can result in terrible consequences. Inadequate security frequently results in cases of robbery, rape, assaults, and in some cases wrongful death. These incidents are in many cases preventable by property owners taking simple safety precautions to prevent them from happening.
Some of these safety measures are inexpensive and only require:
· Proper lighting in dark areas
· Installing functioning locks on all doors
· Providing security cameras where appropriate
· Providing adequate security personnel in appropriate circumstances
· Providing adequate maintenance throughout one’s property
· Providing adequate alarm systems where needed
If these and other essential safety precautions are not taken, they may result in innocent people getting seriously hurt.
You have the right to hold the property owner liable for your injuries.
If you or someone you care about has been seriously injured as a result of inadequate or negligent security, we can help protect your rights. We help our clients fight back by getting our clients the monetary compensation they deserve for their injuries.

Was The Likelihood of Criminal Activity Foreseeable?
One of the key factors in these cases is whether the criminal activity was foreseeable. For the bar to be held liable, they must have known or should have known that there was a likelihood of criminal activity taking place on their premises.
If it was a one-time event and there was no way for them to know that it would happen, then they will not be held liable. However, if there have been multiple incidents of fighting or other criminal activity at the bar, then they should have taken steps to prevent it from happening again.
Another factor that will be considered is whether the bar took steps to prevent criminal activity from happening. If they did not take any steps to increase security or to stop the fighting, then they will likely be held liable. However, if they did take steps to try to prevent it from happening, such as hiring security guards or increasing lighting, then they may not be held liable.
If you have been injured as a result of criminal activity at a bar, you may have a claim against the establishment. However, several factors will be considered to determine if the bar can be held liable. You should speak with an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your case and to determine if you have a claim.
