Proving Negligent Security
Failing to provide sufficient security measures on a property can result in crimes, such as assault, stabbings, robbery, and rape, by third parties. Locations that frequently experience security issues are residential buildings, commercial properties, bars, restaurants, hotels, grocery stores, schools, and sports arenas. The victim must prove that a property owner knew that proper security measures are required to prevent crime and protect their guests, but failed to take proper action that resulted in the victim’s injuries due to the commission of a crime.
Common forms of negligent security includes:
- Failure to provide trained and experienced security personnel
- Failure to possess security and surveillance cameras
- Failure to properly secure buildings
- Failure to have proper lighting
