Building a Negligent Security Case in Adams County

Before you will be able to recover any compensation for your damages, you must establish fault for those damages. While you have the right to seek compensation for your damages from the individual who committed the criminal act you experienced, the property owner is liable for their failure to maintain appropriate security that could have prevented the incident. Commonly cited forms of negligent security in Adams County are:

  • Gates, windows, or doors left open and/or unlocked.
  • Broken security cameras or failure to ensure proper camera monitoring.
  • Lack of security guards and/or poorly trained security guards.
  • Failure to monitor entrances to the property, especially in residential buildings.
  • Broken lights.

If any element of the property enabled a criminal act to occur, the property owner is likely to face liability for negligent security. Once you have proven this, your Adams County negligent security attorney can help recover compensation for your losses, including your medical bills, lost income, property losses, and your pain and suffering.

You may also have the right to seek compensation from the individual who committed the criminal act, and they are likely to face criminal charges from the state. Your Adams County negligent security attorney can be invaluable for the help they can provide in determining each party’s liability for your damages and discerning the various forms of compensation you can seek with your claim.

Adams County Negligent Security FAQs

Q: What Is the Negligent Security Law?

A: Negligent security falls within the purview of premises liability law, which pertains to private property owners and the duty of care they owe to lawful visitors. A private property owner is legally required to ensure they have the necessary security in place to keep their lawful visitors reasonably safe and to minimize the chance of criminal acts occurring on their property. They must also address known safety risks as soon as they become aware of them.

Q: What Is a Lawful Visitor According to Premises Liability Law?

A: The distinction between a lawful visitor and an unlawful visitor is an important one for any premises liability claim in Adams County. Property owners only owe a duty of care to lawful visitors, such as those to whom they have given express or implied permission to enter their property. Unlawful visitors include trespassers and intruders. These individuals have no grounds for legal recourse if they are injured after illegally entering private property.

Q: What Is the Negligence Law?

A: Colorado upholds the modified comparative negligence law, meaning it is possible for more than one party to bear fault for the damages cited in a civil claim. If a plaintiff bears partial fault, they can still claim compensation for their damages if they are less than 50% at fault, but their fault percentage is subtracted from their case award as a penalty. If they are more than 50% at fault, they cannot seek compensation from any other liable party.

Q: How Much Is My Negligent Security Claim Worth in Adams County?

A: If you are able to prove fault for any personal injury, the defendant is liable for your economic damages, such as property damage, medical expenses, and lost income. Additionally, the plaintiff may also claim compensation for projected future losses and their pain and suffering, but state law limits pain and suffering compensation in personal injury cases. A plaintiff may also receive punitive damages and/or restitution after harm from a criminal act.

Q: What Are Attorneys’ Fees for an Adams County Negligent Security Attorney?

A: The Law Firm of Jeremy Rosenthal offers contingency fee billing for personal injury claims in Adams County. When you have a contingency fee agreement with your attorney, you pay a fee for their legal counsel only after they win your case, and you owe nothing if the attorney is unable to secure compensation for you. This ensures you do not pay more in legal fees than you win in compensation for your losses.
