Negligent Security

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.
