Negligent Security Accidents

What is a negligent security claim?

When an individual or business owns property that is accessible by other individuals, it is their responsibility to ensure that their visitors and patrons are safe while on their property. This usually involves the use of security guards and/or cameras, adequate lighting, fencing or walls, locks, and security alarms. If no such security is used by an establishment, it is in their best interest to place signs or to otherwise inform visitors of the lack of security to avoid liability in the event of a violent crime. The following situations could arise and cause injury without the utilization of adequate security measures:

  • Robbery
  • Assault and battery
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Sexual assault and rape
  • Shootings
  • Manslaughter and murder
