Inadequate Security

There are people in this world who will try to steal or damage what belongs to others. For this reason, people take security measures to ensure their own safety and that of what is theirs. People all over the world count on the security personnel and technologies they pay for to protect them from burglars, vandals, and other criminals that would do harm to them and to the people and things they love. Though any world requiring such measures suggests an imperfect system, the use of any number of security options can give users peace of mind and allow them to live their lives without fear.

At times, these security measures are not enough, or they do not work. In situations of personal/residential security, this can be disastrous if technologies or individuals fail to do their jobs. People may be injured, killed, or sustain major losses in property. In commercial settings, particularly in those trusted to protect many different peoples’ possessions at once such as banks, storage facilities, and private security facilities, failures to provide adequate security could suggest a breach of professional ethics of care.

Regardless of the situation’s specifics, if security measures do not activate or get carried out by those paid to enact them, the losses sustained by the victims may be the responsibility of the security firm. If you or a loved one was injured because of the failings of a security system or security firm, the attorneys at Grimes Teich Anderson may be able to help. Our North Carolina and South Carolina attorneys are experienced in protecting the rights of victims and getting them the compensation they may deserve in such cases. Security firms may bear some liability if they fail to act in the way they were supposed to in protecting their clients. They may be liable for coverage of the losses or injuries of those who were counting on them for protection.

Coverage of losses by any private security provider is an unwelcome blow to these providers, as losses are not only costly from a monetary standpoint. Damage to the reputation of the security company is another major blow to commercial viability, and incidents of security inadequacy that play out in the public eye could cost them future business. As a result, any groups providing security services may try to avoid paying claims of the injured, or they may underestimate the value of the loss.

If you live in the Carolinas and suffered an incident in which security measures you paid for could have helped protect you better, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation for your injuries. You should not be financially liable for the failures of the services you paid for in good faith. Speak to an experienced attorney at Grimes Teich Anderson today who can help protect your rights and get you the compensation to which you may be entitled.
