We Can Hold Property Owners Accountable
Owners and managers of property have a duty to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition commensurate with the activities conducted on the property in order to prevent harm to its business invitees.
Many people do not realize that it is possible to hold property owners responsible for crimes that occur on their property. Under Wisconsin law, property owners have a responsibility to their guests. If they know that their properties are in dangerous neighborhoods or that crime is likely, they have a responsibility to take certain actions, including:
- Hire and properly train security guards
- Hire and properly train bouncers
- Install and effectively use surveillance cameras
- Install or change locks
- Put in place proper precautions during large-scale events
- Screen potential employees
When they fail to provide adequate security as dictated by law, landlords, store owners, security guards, property managers, and other individuals and businesses can be held accountable for the harm crime victims’ experience.
At Levine Law, we have a reputation for success in these cases, called negligent security cases. Over the years, lawyers at our Milwaukee law firm have won or favorably settled many of these cases, including lawsuits involving serious personal injury that changed the lives of the people involved. We have what it takes to handle your negligent security lawsuit efficiently and effectively.
