INJURIES AND ATTACKS MADE POSSIBLE DUE TO INADEQUATE SECURITY

Raleigh Security Negligence Attorneys

Inadequate security measures can have tragic consequences for innocent, unsuspecting people. At Edwards Kirby, we are committed to helping those who have been harmed due to property owners’ failure to provide safe premises, including proper security. Many times, property owners’ failure to provide security allows people to commit harmful, even criminal, acts on their property — such as gunfire, sexual assaults or physical attacks. These inadequate security measures can have tragic consequences for innocent, unsuspecting people.

In 1999, partner David Kirby won the largest workplace violence jury verdict in U.S. history, involving an employee whose homicidal threats were ignored by management until he killed three workers and wounded another in Asheville, North Carolina.

Our Raleigh premises liability lawyers have represented many personal injury and wrongful death clients whose injuries and losses could have been avoided if basic precautions had been taken by an employer or property owner to protect lawful visitors, customers, employees, and occupants. Assaults can occur in hotels, shopping centers, hospitals, nursing homes, on the job, and a host of other areas.
