Negligent Security

Most people understand the concept of a slip-and-fall accident. If a property owner fails to keep his or her property safe and one of his or her patrons is injured as a result, the property owner is responsible. What many people are not aware of is that security is a similar issue.

Property owners in areas with a higher incidence of violence have a responsibility to take measure to ensure the safety of their patrons. If they fail to do so and someone is hurt in a violent attack such as an assault or a robbery, the property owner needs to be held accountable.

There are clear steps that a property owner can take to create a more safe environment for his or her patrons, including:

  • Installation of security lighting
  • Installation of security fencing
  • Installation of security cameras
  • Installation of high quality door locks (hotels, motels and apartments)
  • Hiring security staff

Locations that could merit heightened security measures include:

  • Shopping malls/shopping centers
  • Parking ramps/parking lots
  • Hotels/motels
  • Apartment buildings
