Representing crime victims in West Virginia
Property owners have a legal responsibility to take precautions and appropriate measures to keep visitors safe from harm. Negligent premises security can lead to sexual assaults, robberies, rapes, criminal assaults, and other traumatic incidents as well. The premises liability attorneys at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC hold negligent property owners accountable.
Negligent security is a problem that can occur nearly anywhere. People are susceptible to attack or injury in parking lots, at ATMs, on college campuses, in parking garages, hospitals, nursing homes, shopping centers, sporting stadiums, and almost anywhere they go. Many attacks could have been prevented by security measures such as installing security cameras, putting up gates, and trimming overgrown brush or landscaping.
