[00:00:05.480] Right now, I have a case where [00:00:07.840] my clients' apartment was broken into at two in the morning. [00:00:10.640] My clients were shot. [00:00:12.320] They came in through the front door that was unlocked. [00:00:15.960] It's a big lawsuit that's ongoing. [00:00:18.680] It's what we do. [00:00:20.920] Of course, this was in an area known for its criminal activity. [00:00:24.040] In fact, this building [00:00:25.720] had a similar incident just two years prior. [00:00:28.520] Yet the landlord refused to put on a working lock on the door. [00:00:34.600] We take these cases, and we go after the landlord. [00:00:37.120] They have an obligation known. [00:00:39.240] These known dangers to protect their tenants. [00:00:41.480] When they fail to do so, [00:00:42.920] they're responsible for our tenants' injuries. [00:00:45.360] It's important on your premises security cases [00:00:47.920] to have an attorney. [00:00:49.360] Because an attorney, [00:00:50.840] particularly here at the Law Offices of Michael Joseph, [00:00:53.360] we have the skill, the knowledge and the expertise [00:00:56.720] to know what evidence we need and to get on it right away. [00:00:59.880] It's important to gather all the evidence, the surveillance videos, [00:01:03.120] the police reports, the witness statements right away. [00:01:08.280] It's important to be able to navigate through the judicial system [00:01:11.880] with your case. [00:01:13.920] We have the ability here to pull up the police data. [00:01:16.680] A lot of times to prove that the area had a known high crime risk, [00:01:20.960] you need police data. [00:01:22.680] Number of arrests in the last six months, number of claims in the last six months. [00:01:27.520] We can pull up the 911 calls for the last six months, one year, two years, [00:01:31.320] to show a jury that this was a known high crime area with a number of break-ins [00:01:36.640] and that the landlord [00:01:38.760] should have had better security. [00:01:41.080] Here's what a client should expect. [00:01:42.960] Here's what they're going to know from day one, [00:01:44.640] from the very first phone call. [00:01:45.840] They're going to know exactly what needs to get done to prove their case. [00:01:48.960] They're going to know what we're doing to prove their case, [00:01:51.320] what efforts we're taking right out of the gate. [00:01:55.320] Getting the surveillance videos, getting the witness statements. [00:01:58.040] Sending our investigator down to get all the information possible. [00:02:01.560] Pulling the police data from the neighborhood, [00:02:04.360] getting the letters out to the insurance companies, [00:02:06.880] preparing a lawsuit. [00:02:08.520] All from day one, from that first phone call. [00:02:10.880] They'll know the steps [00:02:12.320] that are going to be required [00:02:13.680] to get their case across that finish line.
