Mesa Negligent Security Lawyers
Negligent security cases commonly fall under premises liability law. Business owners, landlords and property managers have an obligation to provide adequate security measures to ensure that when individuals are lawfully on their premises, they are safe. When those entities fail to meet those safety obligations - and someone is attacked and injured - there may be grounds for the victim to file a negligent security lawsuit.
For more than 27 years, Phillips Law Group has been helping to protect the rights of victims and our legal team has recovered more than $750,000,000 in compensation on behalf of our clients. We have experience handling injury cases including a $1,000,000 recovery for a client that suffered a broken neck and collarbone in a premises liability case and $325,000 for a premises liability victim that suffered second and third degree burns.

Who Can File A Negligent Security Lawsuit?
Negligent security and inadequate security claims are commonly the result of the failure of a business owner, land owner, property owner or other, third party from providing sufficient security measure in the premises that they own and/or operate.
Victims can include:
- Hotel guests
- Cruise ship guests
- Visitors that are not trespassers
Commonly, negligent security cases are filed as a result of an individual becoming the victim of a violent crime. If you believe you have a case, contact a negligent security attorney at Phillips Law Group today for your free consultation.
How A Lawyer May Be Able to Help
Shortly after a negligent security issue has occurred, the insurance company that has issued the insurance policy for the property will reach out to the victim.
Insurance companies are aiming to:
- Dismiss the claim, or;
- Settle the claim as quickly as possible, and;
- Settle the claim for the lowest possible amount
They will often also ask victims to sign waivers and other documentation, including providing a statement about the event. This information is usually compiled to help discredit your claim.
By hiring a licensed negligent security attorney, you can deflect the inquiries of the insurance company to your lawyer. At Phillips Law Group, we understand the trauma that victims often ensure following these type of events, and our goal is to protect your interests so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries.
When we begin investigating your claim, we may begin looking for answers to questions that may include:
- Was the area well lit where the attack took place?
- Was there a surveillance system?
- If so, was it working?
- Did it record the incident?
- Is any video footage available?
- Were there locks on doors at the premises?
- Were they working correctly?
- Were any gates secured and working correctly?
- What is the crime rate in the local area?
- Were emergency phones and panic buttons visible and easily accessible
- Were security guards patrolling the area and was there a sufficient amount of staff?
- Did they witness the event?
- Were they trained to handle these types of situations?
Through extensive investigation and if needed, the use of industry experts and reconstruction technology, our legal team can help to build a strong argument for your damages claim, in an effort to hold negligent parties responsible for their actions. To do this we need to establish that the defendant breached their duty of care, which led to the injuries that were sustained by the plaintiff.

Can I Receive Compensation If the Defendant Is Uninsured?
Insurance companies nationwide are gradually reducing insurance coverage for assault-and-battery incidents, which can make it difficult to recover compensation where an individual has been injured while lawfully on the premises owned by another person or entity.
However, there may still be an opportunity to recover damages under certain circumstances. An example of this may be a property owner that has rented their location to a bar owner. The bar develops a history of fights and public disturbances that often spill into public areas like an adjacent parking lot, yet the property owner fails to evict the tenant despite being aware of these disturbances.
If you are unsure of the specifics of your claim, we welcome you to contact our law firm today and let a lawyer from our legal team review the details for free. There are no upfront fees and there is no obligation to proceed with litigation if we determine you do have a case.

- Sports venues

- Music concert venues
