Negligent Security

Property owners (and managers and occupiers) have a duty to prevent foreseeable crimes on their property. Businesses (hotels, motels, apartment complexes, etc) in high crime areas should take reasonable precautions, such as including security systems and security gates, installing proper locks on doors and windows, surveillance and alarm systems, and sometimes even hiring security guards, to protect against violent crimes occurring on their property.

Negligent security claims are often very complex, and commonly involve:

  • Forced entry
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Inadequate parking lot surveillance
  • Negligent hotel security
  • Negligent hiring
  • Attacks in elevators and stairwells
  • Landlord liability
  • Negligent bank / ATM kiosk security
  • Negligent theme park security
  • Negligent college campus and dorm room security
  • Negligent shopping mall security
  • Negligent sport stadium security
  • Negligent hospital security
  • Negligent nursing home, assisted living residence security

All too often, lives are put in danger when apartment complexes ignore their tenants’ requests to make repairs on the property. If a property owner knows a lock is broken, fails to fix it, and then their tenant is raped or killed, the property owner should be held responsible. If a hotel knows a crime against their guests is likely, they should warn their guests and take measures to prevent the crime. If you or a loved one have been the victim of a crime at a motel, apartment or other business property you may have a negligent security case.

Highly recommed Tidwell Strimban

In October 2015 my wife was a pedestrian struck by a vehicle in a crosswalk in front of a grocery store. She suffered multiple injuries including a traumatic brain injury from which she has yet to fully recover. We were referred to the Tidwell Strimban law firm after the insurance company made a very small settlement offer. It took over two years to reach a settlement 3 weeks before the case was scheduled to go to court. Robert and Aaron recognized the seriousness of the injuries and were very diligent in pursuing our claim to a satisfactory conclusion. WE would also note that the staff, Donna and Ashley are extremely good at keeping us informed at all times. We do not hesitate to highly recommend them for any personal injury matter.

Always There

Mr. Tidwell and his staff are great people to deal with.  He was the first attorney I have ever had to use.  If I ever need to use an attorney again he will definitely be my go to guy.  When I had a question about something his staff was always there.  So if you are needing an attorney, Robert Tidwell is the guy to use.

Best Experience

I can not say enough about the support I received from Tidwell Strimban. There is so much uncertainty after you have been in a car accident. All my fears were relieved after my first meeting, they literally took care of me from the moment we met. They fought for me from the beginning to the end and only had my best interest at heart. After a year of having Tidwell Strimban represent me, we achieved a wonderful settlement in the amount that was fair and just for my accident. I would highly recommend the Tidwell Strimban firm. When you are uncertain and your trust is at stake, place yourself in Tidwell Strimban’s hands, they will not only earn your trust, but work for you to gain the outcome that is fair and just for you as an individual. Could not have been a better experience in the most trying of times.
