When Can You Sue for Negligent Security?
You may sue for negligent security when a premises that should have had certain security-related features did not, and:
- You suffered injuries; or,
- A loved one suffered injuries; or,
- A loved one passed away.
If such outcomes resulted from negligent security, then you generally have a case.
Who Can You Sue for Negligent Security?
A business or property owner may be liable for negligent security. This includes anyone who owns or manages:
- A store
- A school or college campus
- A nightclub
- An entertainment-focused venue
- A sports-related venue
- An apartment complex
- A restaurant
- Any other property where security features are reasonably necessary
Even if a property is in a relatively safe area, property owners should still install security measures. This may involve installing security cameras, hiring security personnel, and building fences.
What Is the Standard of Liability in Negligent Security Cases?
When evaluating liability for security failures, our attorneys generally look for negligence. If someone in charge of security didn’t take reasonable precautions to protect you, then they may have been negligent.
Examples of negligent security measures include:
- Failing to employ a security guard in a high–crime area
- Failing to employ bouncers for a business that generally requires them, like a bar or nightclub
- Failing to properly install lights where customers might be at risk of harm, like near gas pumps or in parking lots
- Failing to install code-protected gates in an apartment complex
- Failing to install security cameras in a business or domestic complex
- Failing to install protective bars or glass for employees working late in high-crime areas
Other failures may have contributed to your injuries. If so, our team can evaluate those details and address them accordingly.
