Best Anaheim Negligent Security Lawyer

A Thorough Investigation That Builds a Strong Case

Our team can gather all the evidence proving that the property owner’s negligence in Anaheim led to your injuries. We can ensure that we do due diligence, such as finding footage from nearby businesses and public transport.

Police Reports

Police reports describe the scene and the statements given by witnesses. These documents also provide observations made by the officers themselves. We can obtain those reports and locate additional witnesses so they can narrate their side of the story.

Maintenance Records

If these exist, maintenance records can show that the owner did not maintain their cameras, alarms, lights, or other devices, which led to your injury.

Working Closely With Professionals to Understand Your Case

We can collaborate with physicians who can help us establish how severe your injury is and its associated costs. These costs include, but are not limited to:

Treatment Costs

All expenses incurred in taking care of yourself fall under treatment costs. These can be from present and future treatment costs, rehabilitation services, and medication. Your treatment can help detail what we know concerning your health.

Medical Documentation

By gathering medical files on your diagnosis, prescription plans, and prognosis, we can see how your wounds affect your life. We can also connect it to other information regarding how your injuries came from the criminal actions committed against you.

Aggressive Negotiation for a Fair Settlement

Our professional personal injury attorneys can communicate with the insurance company that covers the premises. We can utilize all the evidence gathered to demonstrate that your injuries came from a security lapse by the property owner. Our firm can conduct an elaborate review of the case to establish a clear cause-and-effect relationship between your injuries and the failed security.

Easton & Easton, LLP, works to secure a settlement that compensates you fairly for everything you have lost. From medical bills and lost wages to pain and suffering, we can fight for all of it. We refuse to take any offer made in bad faith. Our team can aggressively fight to protect your rights and get maximum compensation.

Litigation for Your Case

We can represent you before a judge if we do not reach a favorable agreement. We can plan every step of your case carefully and anticipate what opponents might say so we can present the most effective counterargument. This process can entail reviewing the legal literature comprehensively and examining similar cases.

Having handled similar disputes before, your legal advocate can defend your interests in front of judges or juries. In court, they can make sure that the jury understands both how severe your injuries were and that it is the property owner’s fault.

Anaheim Negligent Security Lawyer FAQs

Q: What Is a Common Defense Against a Negligence Claim?

A: Overall, in negligent security cases, plaintiffs argue that their injuries stemmed from the lack of appropriate security. A common defense against a negligence claim is that property owners provided reasonable security measures for the circumstances leading to the incident.

Defense representation arguing this defense may argue that the crime resulting in the plaintiff’s injury was unforeseeable or unavoidable. If the defense can back this argument with clear evidence, it can be difficult for the plaintiff’s side to overcome it.

Q: What Are the Four Types of Negligence?

A: While no universally accepted categorization of negligence exists, some people have groupings to help distinguish certain case aspects. The most common type of negligence is ordinary negligence, where the person failed to exercise the level of reasonable care an ordinary person would use in similar circumstances.

A more serious second type is gross negligence, where there is a reckless disregard for others’ safety. Professional negligence also exists for people performing their work duties. Lastly, malicious negligence can include conscious or intentional disregard for people’s safety.

Q: What Is Gross Negligence?

A: There are levels of severity in negligence, and gross negligence is one of the highest. Gross negligence can imply that the defendant went well past carelessness and bordered on or seriously surpassed recklessness. In gross negligence cases, the defendant can allegedly have had no regard for the safety of others and spent no money to try to shield anyone from danger.

It is common for gross negligence to not be involved in a negligent security trial. If it is, though, the plaintiff can seek punitive damages.

Q: How Much Can a Lawyer Take From a Settlement in California?

A: The amount that a lawyer can take from a settlement in California varies, depending on the type of case. Commonly, while there can be an upper limit to how much an attorney can receive from your negligent security settlement, it is wise to speak with firms before hiring them to gauge how much they will charge. A skilled attorney can provide you with an estimate of what they will charge you and whether it is a contingency fee or another fee structure.

Help With Your Negligent Security Case in Anaheim

Negligent security cases can be difficult if you attempt to conduct them alone. It is unwise to pursue compensation without a skilled attorney, especially if you have no experience in the legal system. Let Easton & Easton, LLP, help you through this difficult time. We have experience fighting aggressively for our clients and know what it takes to get maximum compensation in these cases. You can be assured that your desires are safe when you partner with us.

As a patron or legally invited person, you deserve compensation when a property owner fails to protect you from crime on their property. This does not mean, however, that the at-fault individual will simply pay you because it is the right thing to do. On the contrary, these individuals often shy away from responsibility. If they do decide to pay you, they can try minimizing all payouts, so they rarely cover what you need.

When you hire us, we can fight against disrespectful settlement offers and deals that are not worth your time. While you focus on recovery, we can be your greatest advocate. Contact us today for more information about how we can help in your negligent security case. Remember, you are not alone.

Coming out of my first auto accident as an adult, a very difficult and scary time to navigate and understand, I was so incredibly thankful to have been put in contact with Easton & Easton.

I could not be more pleased with the services provided by the Law Offices of W. Douglas Easton. The senior partner Mr. Easton took the time to meet with me and my wife while I was still in the hospital, where he gave my family hope that there was light at the end of a very long, and very dark tunnel. Matt Easton then worked my case, and because of his dedication, experience and expertise I received a settlement that was larger than I EVER thought possible. It was truly astounding! Matt and the entire team at Easton & Easton looked out for me throughout my recovery, and in the end they gave me my life back. Five stars is not enough. Thanks Matt! Thanks Easton & Easton!

I can’t say enough amazing things about my experience with Travis Easton at Easton & Easton. Travis and his entire team (Katie, Amy, Dee, Michelle, & Araceli) are phenomenal.

Nothing was generic, which shows the level of care and attention they put into each individual case.

Ashlee A.

Retaining Easton and Easton was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! From the initial consultation to our final meeting, they were nothing short of exceptional. I was forced to retain their services after firing my previous attorney for not handling the case properly. I dealt with Gabriel and Brian (partner) exclusively throughout the case. They did as promised and were great communicators throughout the entire process. I will recommend them to anyone I know going through a personal injury case. They were ultimately able to untangle the mess caused by my previous lawyer and get a result that I was extremely happy with. Their staff is exceptional as well and provided top notch customer service. Amera was also extremely helpful and easy to deal with as well.

Jeffrey N.

I was in a pretty bad car accident and decided to have Easton & Easton represent me, Travis Easton to be specific. Travis Easton and his paralegal made the whole process effortless. They were so understanding and helpful! The entire thing was a gigantic mess, yet Travis managed to make it run like clockwork. I would HIGHLY recommend Easton & Easton! If you are ever in need of a personal defense attorney Easton & Easton is the firm to represent you!
