Contact a Premises Liability Attorney
When speaking of negligent security in a legal context, it refers to a
lack of care on behalf of a property owner. This is why it falls under
the realm of a
premises liability case. The reason this kind of claim is different is because it is dealing
specifically with security. For example, if an employee of a gas station
was working behind the register and became the victim of robbery which
caused him injury, the employee may be able to file a claim against the
gas station's owner because of a lack of proper security needed to
prevent this type of accident from happening. Some of the most common
scenarios where negligent security happens are listed below:
Lack of Store Security- Anyone who is present at a retail store, restaurant or other similar public
place who becomes the victim of criminal activity may be able to file
a claim against the store's owner because of lack of security. This
is why security guards are employed at most malls and security cameras
as well as emergency panic buttons are installed in many stores.
Landlord Negligence- If you were injured because of some negligence on behalf of your landlord
then you may be entitled to a claim. This may look like being involved
in an accident or becoming the victim of criminal activity when it could
have been prevented by your landlord.
Negligent Staffing- When employers hire individuals who are under qualified for the job at
hand, not only is the employee responsible for their negligent actions,
but their employer will be as well.
