Woodbridge, VA Personal Injury Attorney Helps Clients Recover Losses as a Result of Negligent Security

We buckle our safety belts, install alarm systems in our homes, and teach our children to be careful. But what if we are in a situation in which a property owner's negligence has put us in danger? Something as simple as a broken lock on the door of an apartment building or insufficient and incompetent security personnel in an area known to be risky can be an invitation for criminal activity— and a serious threat to innocent victims.
