Lack of security guards may put New York patrons at risk

Many companies have some form of security in place to lower the risks of accidents. However, some establishments may be lacking in security guards, and as a result, they may be putting their businesses and their patrons in danger. Serious incidents can take place at various locations and under any number of circumstances. Therefore, if an individual is injured due to an establishment being unsafe, he or she may have grounds to file a legal claim.

Many New Yorkers go to restaurants, clubs or bars that sell alcohol. Because there is a risk that individuals could drink too much, there is also a concern that a fun time could turn destructive. If there is a lack of security, a situation could escalate and result in injuries. 

Even without alcohol present, establishments could have a number of safety issues. In some cases, store or property owners may not accommodate for risks that they have overlooked. Security personnel may be able to point out concerns that need to be addressed, and if there is inadequate security, those issues could go unchecked and potentially lead to injured patrons.

If a inadequate security guards or other security related issues have resulted in New York residents suffering serious injuries, premises liability claims may be warranted. These claims could be filed against the parties deemed responsible in order to pursue compensation for damages resulting from an injury-causing incident that took place on the property. Those affected have every right to speak with experienced attorneys to find out more on such options.
