Negligent Security Cases

Inadequate or negligent security is defined as the failure of a property owner to take reasonable security measures in order to protect guests, visitors, tenants, customers, or employers from crime. Though property owners are not necessarily liable for a crime that takes place on their premises, they have a duty to try and prevent or deter crimes before they happen. For example, if an apartment complex has experienced consistent burglaries, the landowners must respond with logical security measures to prevent future theft or assault, such as improved locks and lighting, increased security staff, or frequent perimeter checks. If a tenant is harmed in a course of a burglary, that person may be able to claim compensation from the landlord for physical injuries, mental anguish, loss of wages, and more.

Ordinary Security Measures of Property Owners

Ordinary security measures that most property owners can be reasonably expected to implement include:

  • Adequate lighting
  • Primary and secondary locks on doorways
  • Window locks
  • Security staff
  • Periodic security guard patrols
  • Surveillance cameras
  • Protective perimeter fencing
  • Clear placement and indication of exits
  • Fully functional fire extinguishers
  • Fully functional smoke alarms
  • Bullet-resistant enclosures

Inadequate Security Claims

You can encounter inadequate security anywhere, whether it’s a workplace, rental home, shopping mall, or airport. When inadequate security leads to criminal attacks, the victims may sustain a wide range of injuries. Personal injury from criminal attack can cause serious mental anguish and life-altering pain or debilitation.

To build a successful inadequate security claim, you must prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the existing threat of criminal behavior. You must also show that the security in place at the time of your injury was inadequate to prevent or deter the crime. If you have been injured as the result of inadequate security by a negligent property owner, you need an experienced lawyer to help you file the strongest possible claim and maximize your compensation.
