Negligent Security? Here's What Can Happen.
Inadequate security claims stem from a failure of a public or private entity to guard against preventable criminal acts. Negligent security claims often result from assaults, sexual assaults, rapes, shootings and theft. These claims can seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering.
What Does 'Inadequate Security' Mean?
The difficulty in pursuing negligent security cases is demonstrating that a hotel, apartment owner or other property owner was aware of a potential security danger and failed to take action. Some of the common steps business owners fail to take to protect people include:
- Failure to staff security guards
- Failure to install security cameras
- Poor lighting in parking ramps, parking lots or stairwells
- Failure to properly secure entry doors and gates
- Failing to properly screen security guards and other employees
- Failure to install or maintain adequate intercoms and door locks
