What is Negligent Security?
Negligent security, also known as inadequate security, falls under the umbrella of premises liability. Under this law, property owners are required to maintain a safe & secure premise. They are also mandated to take preventative measures against foreseeable hazards before they become a danger to patrons. These types of cases are very complex and take a team of dedicated personal injury lawyers willing to put in the time and resources to win your case and award you the compensation you deserve. At J. Fine Law, it is our job as negligent security attorneys to pinpoint the liable party, which can include several possibilities such as property owners, third-party security staff, event organizers and more. Once the responsible party has been determined, our lawyers will fight for eligible compensation including medical expenses, lost earnings, emotional trauma and even wrongful death.
Examples & Common Causes of Negligent Security
Negligent security and premises liability include both non-violent and crimes. Common examples of a negligent security suit include innocent bystanders injured in a bar fight, shooting outside of a restaurant, sexual assault at an apartment complex, theft crimes and many more. These heinous crimes occur when a property owner fails to have proper security in place or by not taking preventative actions. Negligent security usually happens as a result of:
- Broken or malfunctioning equipment including lights, locks, alarm systems and gates. A property owner is responsible for the inspection and maintenance of all security equipment.
- Failure to take precautions against future incidents after a criminal complaint has taken place on the property.
- Lack of security including poor lighting, no alarm system or locks, which could have prevented criminals from acting violently on the property.
- Improper training of security that was hired to keep patrons safe during an event.
