Assaults & Attacks Due to Negligent Security
Boston Premises Liability Attorney
When you go to a bar, attend a movie, or withdraw money from the ATM and your bank, you generally expect a certain level of safety involved in those acts. Under general premises liability law, an owner is required to maintain a certain level of security for their building. Especially so when that commercial property has previously experienced acts of violence.
If you or a loved one has been assaulted or attacked due to the negligent security of a property owner, you could be entitled to compensation.

When is a Property Owner Liable for My Assault or Attack?
After an assault or attack, we understand the desire to bring those responsible for your injuries to justice. In order to maximize your chances of winning your premises liability case, you must prove the owner is negligent. Business owners and landlords of both public and private locations have a responsibility to maintain a reasonable degree of safety for those utilizing their property. When proving negligence you must prove the property owner knew, or reasonably should have known about the dangerous condition and failed to provide additional safety measures.
Examples of Premise Liability Negligence:
- Rowdy Bar with No Security – If you were assaulted or attacked in a bar that had a history of bar fights and sexual assaults in the bathroom you could have a premises liability claim if the property owner failed to provide additional security for their patrons.
- Bank ATM in a High Crime Area – If your bank is situated in a high crime area with a history of armed assaults and attacks, the owner is responsible for providing safety measures to ensure their customers are not assaulted.
- Parking Lot Assaults – It is common for large parking lots, like Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club to have a history of attacks due to their size and inadequate lighting. The owner of the property has a responsibility to provide proper lighting and security during business hours. If you were assaulted in the parking lot of a store front and no security or proper lighting existed at the time, you could have a premises liability case.
