Experienced Michigan Attorneys Representing Those Injured From Inadequate Property Security

In Michigan, landlords generally have a duty to keep their premises reasonably safe from foreseeable criminal acts by third parties. Sadly, some Detroit landlords shirk this duty and, as a result, tenants are harmed. When this happens, Michigan law affords injured tenants the right to seek money damages from the landlord through a premises liability lawsuit.

If you or a family member has been seriously harmed or killed by an intruder at an apartment building, you may have the right to legal recourse. Unfortunately, winning a negligent security claim is difficult, as the victim has the burden of proving that the landlord’s negligence resulted in the victim’s injuries.

At McKeen & Associates, P.C., our Michigan negligent security lawyers are experienced at helping injured victims obtain the money damages they’re entitled to. We understand the difficulties involved with bringing a premises liability claim and we have the skills, resources and knowledge to help our clients achieve the best possible outcome.
