When you are on another person’s residential or commercial property, you are owed complete and adequate security. If you have been injured on another person’s property because of negligent or inadequate security, you could be entitled to file a negligent security insurance claim or lawsuit to recoup the cost of medical care for your injuries. You may also be entitled to the cost of your injury-related expenses.
When a Pittsburgh negligent security lawyer goes to work on your claim, they can help you identify the right party to pursue, prove their negligence led to your injuries, assign a financial value to your claim, and negotiate a favorable settlement that lets you avoid a lengthy trial. Get started on your pursuit of financial recovery by calling (800) 896-1221 to contact the client intake team at Ben Crump Law, PLLC today.
Calculate Your Potential Financial Compensation
In Pittsburgh, you are subject to contributory negligence laws that could decrease the amount of compensation you receive, according to 42 Pa. CSA § 7102. Our team works hard to prove the property owner bears full financial liability for your injuries and that you are entitled to full financial compensation. You can request compensation for the following injury-related financial expenses and losses:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Current and future lost wages
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Physical disability and deformities
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Property repair or replacement
Our team will work hard to ensure your compensation claim is thoroughly and accurately valued and that no eligible expenses or losses are overlooked. Your negligent security insurance claim or lawsuit is about making sure you do not add financial hardship to the physical and emotional impact of your injuries. When you are ready to calculate the cost of your injuries and related expenses, our team is here to help.
Our Team Fights Hard for Your Rights
When our team represents you, we work hard to build a case file that supports your right to financial compensation. Your case file will contain pictures of your injuries, if possible, and of the location where your injuries occurred. Location photos can attest to the lack of adequate security measures or insufficient lighting that may have contributed to your injuries.
Our team can also locate and interview witnesses who can attest to the condition of the property where you were injured. In addition, the team member who builds your case file will:
- Obtain and review police reports, if applicable
- Read and review your accident or incident reports
- Read and review your medical records and bills
- Use your salary history to calculate your lost wages
- Locate and interview witnesses to your accident
- Keep you continually updated on the progress of your claim
To ensure financial concerns do not prevent you from seeking compensation, we also work on a contingency fee basis which means you will not pay any upfront or out of pocket expenses. Finally, because we know the potential damage of failing to meet the statute of limitations, we make sure your case is filed on time.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit Is Time Sensitive
If you or a member of your family has been injured due to negligent or inadequate security, you have the basis of a personal injury lawsuit for financial compensation. Because your injuries occurred in Pittsburgh, your right to file a personal injury lawsuit is limited by the statute of limitations in Pennsylvania
According to 42 Pa. CSA § 5524, you generally have two years from the date of the onset of your injuries to file your lawsuit or risk having it dismissed by the court without ever being heard. If that happens, the at-fault property owner usually no longer has a legal responsibility to cover your accident-related expenses and losses.
A Pittsburgh negligent security lawyer can help remove that risk by making sure your negligent security lawsuit is filed on time. Contact a member of our client intake team as soon as possible for more information.

Resolve Your Compensation Claim without Going To Court
If you would prefer to resolve your negligent security claim with a financial settlement rather than by going to court, we can negotiate a favorable monetary award on your behalf. We can start by assessing the full comprehensive cost of your injuries.
Because accepting a settlement offer is the final step in the lawsuit process, we make sure you are aware that patience is an important part of a financial settlement. With that, a settlement amount that is offered too soon may not fully cover your injury-related expenses.
You should also be aware that you, not your lawyer, make the final decision to accept or reject a settlement offer. We work hard to negotiate a settlement that fully covers your expenses and prevents you from paying any out of pocket costs for injuries you have suffered through no fault of your own. When you are ready to negotiate a final settlement, our legal team is ready to fight for the best possible financial outcome for you.
