Negligent security cases occur when either business owners, property owners or landlords do not provide enough security for individuals on their property. Typically in cases like this the injured party is a victim of a mugging, rape, or assault that could have been prevented if the property owned had adequate security precautions.

Things like broken door locks, inadequate lighting in parking lots and outdoor areas, as well as malfunctioning or absent security cameras are all examples of negligent security.  Retail locations, commercial addresses, apartment managers, and parking garage owner’s all have a responsibility to have safety measures in place to keep their customers, workers, and visitors secure. When these locations fail to take the safety of people on their property seriously, they may be subject to paying out large sums of money as compensation.

This is a guest blog post from our attorney friends at  GravesMcLain inTulsa, Oklahoma.


Steve Hymowitz an extraordinary attorney!!!!
He was the 5 th attorney that I had called after I was In a bad car accident that I sustained lifetime injuries from. All the other attorneys said “no, sorry I can’t help you since you had a fender bender years ago with some minor injuries when someone hit you at a red light.
I was flabbergasted because the injuries I had prior, were so minimal . The debilitating and multiple issues I had in this accident, I knew would be lifetime struggle but Nobody would listen to me.
So calling Mr Hymowitz’s office, I was told it would be very tough and he would do extensive research regarding all aspects of this case and fight every detail on my behalf …and he did!!!!! His Practice being in New York and New Jersey was a plus for my case.

Lynn, his right hand paralegal, ( who guided me every step of the way) told me through this whole process you watch, “he’s amazing, he is an extraordinary attorney and you’ll be amazed at what he could do ….. she was right!!!!
Lynn made this process so much easier with her continued communication to me, her empathy and her tolerance!
I have been in the medical and business field for years prior to the accident. I feel that I was very lucky and blessed to have this very professional, respectful, and very educated Gentleman as my warrior who truly fought so hard for me!!! I loved that he always kept me in the loop with great communication!
I found him to be a very caring human being!

My settlement was more than I could’ve imagined!!
And that’s because he proved the truth of my injuries!

I am forever grateful for Steve Hymowitz!
