Corbin Attorneys Litigating Negligent Security Claims

Protecting Fellow Kentuckians from those Failing to Maintain a Safe and Secure Venue Location

Negligent Security

The owners of premises and businesses have the responsibility to provide a certain level of safety to the patrons, clients, and guests who frequent their establishments. Depending on the nature of the property or business, one of the ways that managers attempt to accomplish this is by employing security personnel. However, not all security officers, bodyguards, and bouncers are trained professionals. Oftentimes, the actions or incompetence of security employees result in injuries to innocent bystanders. If you've been injured directly or indirectly due to the actions of a business's security personnel, you should contact Freeman, Childers & Howard, Attorneys at Law immediately.

Liability of Shop Keepers and Other Premise Owners

The law requires businesses that maintain premises to ensure the safety of their patrons. However, managers often place profitability above safety and hire cut rate security personnel to create the illusion of protection for their customers. And when things go awry, people are often injured. If you have been injured while at a business or on the property of another, and you believe that your injury could have been prevented by increased or improved security, contact the Corbin, KY personal injury firm of Freeman, Childers & Howard, Attorneys at Law.
