Tulsa Negligent Security Lawyer
Dedicated Legal Help for Tulsa Nursing Home Residents Hurt Due to Negligent Security
Premises owners and operators have a responsibility to anyone who relies on them to provide adequate security to protect the individuals and their belongings. A claim of “negligent security” is a matter of premises liability, in which the owner of a facility, such as a garage owner or landlord, fails to employ adequate security, and people’s property or safety is put at risk.
When the premises in question is a nursing home, negligent security is extremely serious. We entrust the care of our elderly and infirmed loved ones to nursing homes, assisted living facilities, rehabilitation facilities, and other long-term care facilities, and we expect these facilities to care for their residents’ basic needs. When the safety and security of residents are put at risk because a nursing home fails to employ security or lock the door, property can get stolen, and our loved ones can get hurt.
The Tulsa negligent security lawyers at Levinson Law, P.C., have years of experience helping nursing home residents and their families recover from nursing homes who fail in their basic duty to keep residents safe. If your family member resides in a nursing home that fails to provide adequate security and your loved one is harmed as a result, you and your family deserve to be compensated. We can help.
Holding Negligent Nursing Homes to Task
Nursing homes and other long-term care facilities are required by law to use a minimum level of security to keep residents safe. Negligent security can lead to a criminal attack on residents. Residents may be physically assaulted, robbed, or sexually abused. Elderly or disabled residents are especially vulnerable to attack because they may already have a physical weakness or illness that prevents them from defending themselves. An attack can cause physical and emotional harm, as well as additional financial burdens for any resulting medical care.
If someone manages to break into a nursing home and hurts any of the residents, it is important to ask whether the facility failed in its duty and whether the incident could have been prevented had the facility done more to protect residents. Did the facility have working security cameras? Properly trained and experienced security guards? Were the doors locked, both inside and outside the facility? Were the guards actually doing their job, or were they sleeping, intoxicated, or distracted? Is there a pattern of lax security at the home?
The Tulsa nursing home negligent security attorneys at Levinson Law, P.C., will help you investigate these issues and more to get to the bottom of how an attack on your loved one was allowed to happen. If the home failed in its duty to provide necessary security for your elderly or disabled family member, our nursing home negligence legal team will help you hold the facility responsible and secure compensation for any harm or injury caused.
