Inadequate Security & What You Need to Know if You’ve Been Injured Because of It

If you are injured on someone else’s property, you may require surveillance footage or security guards to help prove your injury, or, ideally, prevent the injury from happening altogether. That being said, if you are injured due to inadequate security, you most likely require financial compensation to heal. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Texas personal injury attorney to learn more about how our firm can help.

What Are Some Examples of Inadequate Security?

There are various examples of inadequate security, and they all are forms of negligence. Some of the most prevalent examples of inadequate security that our firm sees are as follows:

  • Not having security guards present at certain events/stores.
  • Not having security cameras installed.
  • Having security guards present, but they are insufficiently trained which prevents them from properly doing their jobs.
  • Having cameras installed, but not having someone monitoring them at all times.
  • Having cameras installed, but not ensuring that they are always running and functioning properly.

What to Do After an Accident

If you are injured in an accident due to inadequate security, you will have to do everything in your power to document the incident, as security cameras most likely did not catch the accident as it happened. That is why after an accident, you should call the police, take pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident, ask any witnesses for their contact information, seek immediate medical treatment, and hire an experienced Odessa personal injury attorney who can work to uncover all additional evidence needed to prove your claim.

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims in Texas?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, generally, two years. Simply put, this means that you are granted two years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible for your injuries. While you may wish to wait to see if your injuries heal on your own, we cannot advise you to do so. If you wait any longer than two years, you will most likely be permanently barred from suing. We are ready to begin the claims process today–all you have to do is ask.
