What Is Negligent Security?
Property owners may be responsible if guests are injured on their premises due to negligent conditions. One type of negligence is failure to protect guests from foreseeable risk of injury due to criminal assault.
Examples of negligent security include:
- Failure to hire security guards or ask for increased police patrols despite knowledge of criminal attacks on the property;
- Failure to take measures to deter crime such as installing lights and video cameras;
- Assault by security staff; and
- Failure to install locks on windows and doors of a hotel.
Our lawyers will thoroughly investigate your case to determine if the property owner was negligent. If your injury was foreseeable and preventable, we will seek full compensation for everything you have lost.
