Negligent Security cases

Fighting back for victims of shootings and violent crimes

The COMBIES HANSON, P.C. Law Firm has litigated nearly 100 cases involving the failure to provide adequate security resulting in the victim suffering severe injuries and/or death.

Apartment buildings, as well as establishments such as bars, restaurants, flea markets, shopping centers, nursing homes, banks, and hotels have all been subjects of successfully litigated negligent security claims. By representing individuals permanently injured in cases stemming from negligent security, we take an active role in making the community safe for the public. In 2017, one of our seven figure negligent security settlements was showcased in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly top settlements of the year annual edition.

Negligent security cases reveal that crime can occur more often in locations without security, and in some cases, property owners know about previous incidents and do nothing. The terrible tragedy that may have plagued one family may have been just one of many. If a property owner ignores the problem, it’s likely to happen again.

That’s where we come in. Combies Hanson helps victims of violence recover compensation for their injuries, which were caused by security failures and the absence of reasonable preventive measures like cameras and proper lighting.

Don’t pay us any upfront costs.  We get paid from the funds we get for you.

We work off our own merit, taking cases on a Contingency Fee basis only.  In other words, you don’t pay us any up front costs or fees.  We get paid from the funds we recover for you.  Our legal fee is paid when you either settle your case or win in court.  If you aren’t successful, we don’t get paid.  Simple as that. 

Millions recovered for our clients.
Our office has a proven track record of success.  In 2017, we obtained a $2 Million Dollar settlement in a negligent security case where a young woman was shot in a drive by shooting.  It was in the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly Largest Settlements and Verdicts edition. That’s just one example of our proven results.  Our case results website details some of our wins.  Click here to see more of them.

We Listen.  We help.  We care.

There are a lot of attorneys out there.  But how receptive are they to your problem?  Do they offer you their cell phone number for weekend updates? Do they have an open-door policy at the office?  How easy it to reach them? Have they handled six and seven-figure personal injury cases before?

If you want to reach us, just call or email.  We’re here.  We’re ready to listen. To help. Because it’s our communities, our friends and our neighbors.  And that’s why we care.
