Accidents Caused by Negligent Security

Premises Liability Lawyers in Northern California

Owners of properties such as apartment buildings, universities, banks, hotels, bars, shopping centers, and other public places have a duty to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of those who visit their premises. Typically, property owners achieve this by installing security cameras, hiring security staff, and ensuring that their property is adequately lit. These measures go a long way in deterring suspicious activity, but unfortunately, some property owners are negligent in this regard. Negligent security can pave the way for many types of crimes, including assault, sexual assault, kidnapping, theft crimes, and murder.

What Constitutes Negligent Security?

When violent crimes are committed on another person’s property due to inadequate security, a property owner may be held responsible for any injuries or deaths that arise from an incident.

Some common examples of negligent security include:

  • Improperly trained security staff
  • Inadequate security cameras
  • Inadequate lighting in common areas or parking lots
  • Employment of individuals with criminal records
  • Lack of security barriers, locks, etc.
  • Lack of security protocols/policies

Especially in high-crime areas, taking the necessary precautions to protect people is crucial. Injury victims are encouraged to take advantage of a free consultation with our firm to learn more about how we can help you pursue just compensation.
