If you have been assaulted on someone else’s property and are left with serious injuries, filing a successful negligent security claim will be one of your top priorities. In order to do so, you will need to consult with and hire an experienced negligent security attorney right away. These cases can be very complex. In this article, Buffalo negligent security lawyer Richard Nicotra discusses what you should be aware of if you have found yourself in this predicament.
Filing a Successful Negligent Security Claim | Mistakes to Avoid
One of the most frequent mistakes in a negligent security case is the assumption that somebody else is going to collect names of the witnesses. You can’t assume that the premises owner who fills out the report is going to prepare it properly. Other mistakes include not collecting evidence at the scene, such as pictures, and not getting the names and contact information of any witnesses. Not preserving any information or evidence from the start is something that could be a critical mistake.
Filing a Successful Negligent Security Claim | What to Do After an Injury or Assault
If you have been injured on someone’s premises due to negligent or inadequate security, I always recommend that you consult with an attorney who practices personal injury law. You need an attorney who is going to give you an honest review of your file, and then ask them how they investigate these types of cases. My advice is always to find a competent practitioner in the area of personal injury law, ask them what their experience is, share yours, and then see if you’re comfortable with that person and what they’ll do for you going forward.
