Negligent Security Claims in Texas

Need a Dallas Premises Liability Lawyer? Call (214) 891-3382.

After an assault, rape, or other violent attack, victims are often too seriously hurt and traumatized to evaluate all their legal rights and options. In addition to the criminal case, such an attack may justify a premises liability lawsuit to hold the property owner accountable for negligent security under some circumstances.

As tenacious advocates for injury victims in Texas, the lawyers at Palmer Perlstein are ready to assist with your case. Led by Attorney Scott Palmer, who has been selected for inclusion in Texas Super Lawyers®, a Thomson Reuters service, from 2008 to 2016, our firm is qualified to handle your case with excellence. Our Dallas premises liability attorneys have the knowledge and insight you want in your case.

You can retain our firm with confidence knowing that we will consider all angles in evaluating your negligent security claim and remain upfront about the strength of your claim.

Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable

Proving security negligence by a commercial or multi-family residential property owner requires extensive investigation and research. That is why you need a skilled premises liability lawyer in Dallas behind your case.

At Palmer Perlstein, our efforts may focus on considerations such as:

  • Establishing that the hotel, apartment building, or other location where your attack and injuries occurred was in an area of known criminal activity.
  • Determining whether a property owner failed to take reasonable security measures such as repairing locks, maintaining adequate lighting, hiring security personnel or installing video surveillance cameras.
  • Locating and analyzing all types of applicable insurance coverage that may be available to cover your claim.

Caring Legal Guidance & Aggressive Legal Action

While we are always compassionate and supportive toward our clients, we are extremely aggressive in taking action against property owners whose negligence allowed criminal actions and injuries to occur. We don't take lightly the fact that someone else's negligence cost our clients their health and financial stability. If your case calls for a Dallas injury lawyer who also has extensive criminal and premises liability law knowledge, our firm is the ideal choice.

We are always available to investigate your potential injury claim in a consultation. Contact us at (214) 891-3382 today.
