You may have been reassured when you pulled into the parking lot on North Milwaukee Street, entered the bank on East Wisconsin Avenue, or went into another Milwaukee building with one or more security guards. You felt safe. However, things quickly changed when you were attacked and the security guard wasn’t able to protect you. Now you are left with questions about what happened and about your recovery.
Why Wasn’t More Done to Prevent the Attack?
As you lay in your hospital bed or recover at home you may play back the attack in your head. Could the security guard have done more to prevent your attack? The answer depends on exactly what happened. You may want to find out, for example:
- The specific training the security guard had.
- What the security guard was doing at the time of the accident.
- Whether there were enough security guards for the size of the building or number people.
- Whether other safety precautions were also taken.
- Whether the security guard was otherwise negligent.
If the business was negligent in the security that was provided and you were injured as a result, then you may be able to recover damages.
First, you need to find out exactly what happened. You have no way of knowing if the security guard was appropriately trained, for example, unless you get more information from the business.
