What Is Negligent Security?
Premises liability law requires many property owners to maintain a safe property and to take care of foreseeable hazards before they end up hurting somebody; this includes the hazard of violent crime. If a public or private property is located in a known high-crime area or presents an attractive target to criminals for other reasons, the owner or manager of the property may be required to take reasonable measures to prevent crimes on the premises.
Negligent security can exist in all kinds of properties, including:
- College dorms
- Shopping centers and malls
- Bars and night clubs
- Amusement parks
Courts may even include terrorist attacks, identity theft, and cyber attacks as crimes that may result from negligent security.
What Are Examples of Negligent Security?
Common examples of negligent security include the following:
- Inadequate security cameras
- Inadequate lighting in parking or common areas
- Lack of fences, locks, and other security barriers
- Employment of individuals with criminal backgrounds
- Improperly trained security staff
- Lack of security policies and protocols
An attorney can help you establish your negligent security claim by investigating the property. Gathering photos of the site where the crime took place, documents pertaining to the property's staff and security measures (or lack thereof), and other supporting evidence will go a long way towards achieving a successful case outcome.
