What should I look for when choosing a negligent security attorney?
One type of case we are seeing more and more often is what is known as a negligent security case. Negligent security cases arise when a person in injured on the location of a business because the business did not provide adequate security to keep them safe. For example, if a business knows that they are having a problem with crime in their parking lot, they are not allowed to just ignore it and leave their customers to their own devices to make sure they are safe. The business is required to take reasonable measures to ensure the safety of their customers.
If a business fails to do that or doesn’t do it adequately, and someone is injured, that person may have a negligent security claim against the business. These cases are extremely difficult to work up and require a lot of specialized knowledge. It’s very important to make sure that if you believe you have a personal injury claim arising out of negligent security, that you hire an attorney that has experience handling these cases and successfully resolving them. At the Gunnels Law Firm, we have spent a lot of time working on negligent security cases and know how to work them through to successful conclusions.
Another thing that’s very important for you in hiring a lawyer for any type of personal injury case, including negligent security cases, is to make sure that you have an attorney that knows how the insurance system works. I spent much of my early career representing insurance companies. I realized that I was on the wrong side of these cases, and I would much rather be helping people who have been injured. I can now take the knowledge that I have working for insurance companies and put it to use for my clients because I know how to get the insurance company’s attention and I know how their systems work.
Finally, it’s important in any type of personal injury case, including negligent security cases, to make sure you have an attorney who can take a case to trial. Most cases settle before trial. However, there are times when insurance companies will simply not issue a fair offer and a trial becomes necessary. Unfortunately, there are many attorneys who will not try cases, and insurance companies know this. Those attorneys are never going to get the best possible offers or resolution for their clients because the insurance companies are not afraid of those attorneys taking them to trial.
At the Gunnels Law Firm, we pride ourselves on our trial skills and are frequently in court trying cases. We know how to present a case to a jury, and we know how to maximize results by doing so.
