Security Negligence

What is security negligence?

In many situations, property owners have a responsibility to provide reasonable safeguards to protect their guests, tenants, or patrons. When a violent attack or assault occurs on the property, the owner or management may be held legally responsible for paying monetary damages to the victim through a premises liability claim. A proprietor cannot be expected to protect his or her patrons from all types of harm, but when an attack or sexual assault could have been prevented through reasonable security measures, the victim has a right to demand compensation.

Proving a Negligence Claim

Claims for security negligence can arise based on an attack in a variety of different venues, such as in a parking garage, office building, hotel, or apartment building - any location where the tenant or guest has a reasonable expectation of safety.

If security equipment such as fences and gates, alarm systems, and surveillance cameras are not in place or are not properly maintained, then the victim of the attack may have grounds for legal action. Certain circumstances may support your claim for compensation, such as if the property owner failed to install security measures despite knowledge of high crime rates or a history of crime on the property.
