Who May Be Eligible to File a Negligent Security Case?
To determine whether you may be eligible to pursue legal action, our legal team needs to review the circumstances that caused your injuries. Typically, negligent security cases are filed by victims of some type of crime who had a legal right to be on a commercial or private property. These victims could be:
- Hotel or resort guests
- Retail customers
- Cruise ship passengers
- Vacation rental guests
- Movie theater guests
If a trespasser was injured on private or business property, it is unlikely he or she would have a claim.
In these cases, the burden of proof is on the plaintiff, so in order to establish that a property owner was negligent, there are certain elements you or your attorney need to prove:
Duty of Care
You must prove that you had a legal right to be on the property and the owner had a legal obligation to maintain his or her property, including providing adequate security, to prevent harm to anyone legally permitted on the premises.
Duty of Care Not Upheld
What is deemed necessary to maintain safe premises can vary depending on the property and the location. For example, in an unsafe area, a property owner might have failed in his or her duty of care if there was no physical security on the property or the lighting was not sufficient to ward off would-be trespassers or criminals.
Proving the connection between the failure to uphold a duty of care and the injuries you sustained is key. For example, if the owner had employed a security guard, you might not have suffered an assault by a criminal who trespassed on the property.
You must have been injured and suffered damages as a result of the property owner’s negligence. For example, if you were attacked in a hotel parking lot, your damages could help cover your medical bills, lost wages and more.
Our experienced Prescott negligent security attorneys have been pursuing compensation for injury victims for almost 30 years, and we know what it takes to build a strong argument on your behalf. We are prepared to review the circumstances that caused your injuries and determine if you may have a case.

How Much Compensation Could I Receive?
The value of each case is unique so the compensation amount you could be eligible to receive will depend on the extent of your injuries, how much time you may have missed from work due to your injuries, and whether you are able to return to your previous job after your recovery time, among other factors.
Contact our knowledgeable attorneys today to learn more about how we accurately value our clients claims to help achieve maximum compensation for their injuries. In general, the types of compensation we may be able to seek for you include:
- All reasonable medical expenses related to your injury
- Loss of income while you are unable to go to work
- Pain and suffering
- Physical therapy
- Travel to and from your doctor’s appointments

What is Negligent Security?
A property owner has a legal obligation to take active steps to help ensure the premises are reasonably safe for any customers or other legal invitees who enter the property. An important part of ensuring there is adequate security includes taking into consideration where the property is located, how well lit the area is and more. Some steps that an owner can take to maintain adequate security might include:
- Providing sufficient lighting
- Implementing an alarm system
- Securing windows and doors
- Installing and actively using security cameras
- Hiring qualified security staff
- Regularly inspecting the area for potential hazards
If a property owner fails in this duty and a customer or other legal invitee is injured, the owner could be held liable for negligent security.

Why Should I Consider Hiring a Lawyer?
After an incident, you should expect the insurance company to reach out to ask about what happened. It is important to note that no matter how friendly an insurer may sound on the phone, his or her ultimate goal is not to give you money, because it is not in the best interest of the insurance company. An insurer will always try to find ways to discredit you by saying that your injuries are non-existent or not as severe as you claim, or by trying to offer you a lowball settlement to avoid a larger payout.
Our experienced Prescott negligent security lawyers consider multiple factors when determining the value of a potential claim. For example, we may investigate the general safety of the location, the premises where you were injured, and what other security deficiencies may exist on the property. If there is any camera footage, we would also want to review that for potential evidence.
If we represent you, we will fight tirelessly on your behalf to achieve maximum recovery for your damages and are prepared to go to trial if necessary.

They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Definitely recommend! Awesome
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
