Let us fight for you while you make a successful recovery from injury.

Filing a Negligent Security Claim after an Incident

Failure to provide effective security on property can lead to crimes committed by third parties, such as assault, gun wounds, stabbings, and rape. Common locations that experience negligent security issues include residential buildings, commercial properties, sports arenas, amusement parks, malls, department stores, parking garages, schools, bars, grocery stores, and hotels.

The victim must demonstrate that a property owner knew the adequate security measures are necessary to prevent crime in the area and failed to take the proper action, which resulted in a crime being committed and the victim’s injuries.

Common types of negligent security cases include:

  • Failure to properly screen employees or visitors
  • Failure to provide adequate security guards
  • Failure to possess security and surveillance cameras
  • Failure to have adequate lighting
  • Failure to properly secure buildings
