Why Choose a Riverside Negligent Security Lawyer?

Negotiating a claim of inadequate security can be complicated. Our negligent security attorneys have dealt with cases like yours and can provide invaluable help, including comprehensive accident investigations. Our team can probe into the case to find out the cause of your accident and establish the responsible parties. This may involve:

  • Footage from surveillance cameras. Cameras are commonly used in doorways, parking lots, or corridors. We can access these materials to piece together what happened in your incident.
  • Witness testimonies. Witnesses’ accounts can provide essential information on prior details before your incident occurred. We can also uncover what measures were taken to secure patrons’ safety. Our team can track down all potential witnesses and compile their statements.
  • Maintenance records for premises. These documents can indicate whether the property owner failed to maintain security systems such as alarms, lighting arrangements, or fencing.

Understanding California Premises Liability Law

Premises liability law applies to property owners, who are expected to keep premises safe for visitors. Based on the facts of your case, our legal team can determine whether there was any breach of their duty and if it was an important factor in causing your harm.

Identifying Liable Parties

Several people might be responsible for your injuries, depending on how your case unfolded.

Property Owners

The most responsible party is likely the premises owner. These owners can fail to fix faulty security measures, like dimly lit walkways or malfunctioning security systems.

Security Firms

If a security firm was meant to provide services for securing the property but failed to do so, it could be liable for any breaches resulting from its negligence.

Third-Party Individuals

In some cases, another person may share liability for your injury. For instance, assaults can happen because the security is inadequate, but the assaulter can also pay for your damages.

Calculation of Damages

Financial professionals can help determine the scope of your claim. Our calculations can involve present as well as future costs, such as:

  • Medical Costs: Medical expenses incurred due to the injuries you sustained can contribute significantly to your compensation amount.
  • Loss of Income: These are earnings lost due to time spent away from work recuperating from your accident.
  • Pain and Suffering: The physical and psychological pain caused by your accident can be difficult to quantify, but it matters in your case.
  • Emotional Distress: The distressing situation inflicted on you can leave you with emotional ailments like immense fear, anxiety, depression, or PTSD.
  • Damage to Property: Any personal effects destroyed during that incident can be eligible for compensation.

Aggressive Negotiation With the Insurance Company

Most property owners have insurance coverage against negligent security claims. Our experienced negotiators can handle your negotiation process and ensure that a fair settlement offer is received. We understand that insurance companies employ tactics to delay or deny claims, but we are ready to protect your rights and ensure that you get what you deserve.

FAQs for Negligent Security Lawyers

Q: Can I Sue for Emotional Distress in California?

A: Yes, you can sue for emotional distress in California. While emotional distress is not typically the only reason someone would sue someone, especially in a negligent security case, it can contribute to the claim.

In your claim, you can have the ability to designate negligent or intentional infliction, and a skilled attorney in Riverside can help you distinguish between the two. Additionally, you can sue for economic damages to cover costs like medical bills or non-economic damages to cover elements like pain and suffering.

Q: Is California a Pure Negligence State?

A: No, California is not a pure negligence state. The state uses pure comparative negligence to allow injured parties to collect damages for any percentage of the incident for which they have no responsibility. In practice, pure comparative negligence assumes that if a person is mostly to blame, they can recover the most minute amount of damages or at least not have a responsibility to pay for this small aspect of the claim.

Q: What Is the Time Limit to Sue Someone in California?

A: The time limit to sue someone in California can vary, depending on the type of case, but some cases have a statute of limitation of around a couple of years. If you seek to sue someone, you can easily miss deadlines if you do not prioritize beginning the process as soon as possible. Recovering damages to help you pay off medical bills, pain and suffering, and other case aspects holding immense monetary value can take time, so acting quickly is essential.

Q: How Do You Prove Emotional Damage?

A: Proving emotional damage takes attention, skill, time, and effort. Proving emotional damage can be more difficult than doing so for physical damage, but it is not impossible. Developing a persuasive case around emotional damage can require evidence, such as eyewitness testimonies, therapy records, journal entries, or other ways of documenting the emotional and physical symptoms affecting your well-being and the timeframe in which you experienced these symptoms.

Strategies to prove emotional damage can change, depending on whether you seek to prove negligent or intentional impact.

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.

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!

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!
