Property owners and landlords of private property have a duty to protect their visitors and patrons from foreseeable dangers. Property owners are required to keep their premises relatively safe from dangerous conditions and situations. If the property owners breach their duty, then they are liable for any injuries caused by the dangerous condition existing on their property. Negligent security claims typically arise after a crime has been committed as result of the property owner’s failure to provide adequate security. Crimes arising from negligent security can include attacks, beatings, sexual assaults, and death. Negligent security law routinely focuses on third party attacks that could have been prevented had there been adequate security on the premises.
Negligent security cases commonly involve:
- Inadequate security patrol
- Inadequate surveillance
- Inadequate lighting
- Negligent hiring
- Forced entry
- Negligent training
While crimes as a result of negligent security can occur anywhere, they most commonly occur at or in:
- Gas stations
- Cruise Ships
- Parking lots
- Shopping malls
- Sports stadiums
- Theme parks
- Nursing homes/Assisted living facilities
While some attacks cannot be avoided even if the best security is utilized, many attacks could have been prevented by the presence of adequate security. In order to prevail on a negligent security claim your attorney will have to prove that the property was not adequately secured, the property owners were aware or should have been aware of the risk, and as a result the owners failed to prevent a foreseeable attack on the premises.
