Ventura Negligent Security Lawyer
When you go to a shopping mall, an office building, or even your own apartment complex, you expect to be safe. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Sometimes property owners fail to take adequate measures to provide a safe environment, leading to unfortunate and avoidable incidents like robberies and assaults that fall under the category of negligent security. Negligent security is a subset of premises liability that recognizes the responsibility of property owners to maintain security on their premises and allows injury victims to hold them liable when the property owner’s inadequate security facilitated the assault. Zavala Law has the knowledge, skills and experience to help assault victims hold all liable parties accountable for the harm they’ve suffered, including negligent property owners.

What Constitutes Negligent Security?
You might be wondering, “What exactly counts as negligent security?” It can include, but is not limited to:
- Inadequate lighting in parking lots or stairwells
- Lack of security cameras or malfunctioning equipment
- Failure to provide sufficient security personnel
- Absence of proper locks or alarms on doors and windows
In Ventura County, if a property owner has failed to take adequate security measures and you suffer as a result, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. Victims of robberies and physical assaults, including sexual assaults, can seek to hold property owners accountable for their negligence and the harm they’ve caused. This is on top of any criminal or civil actions taken against the assailant.
