It’s the Property Owner’s Fault, Not Yours
If you are on the property of a business when the incident occurred, then the fault of your injuries may lie with the property owner. Like premises liability for a slip and fall accident, it is the responsibility of the property owner to make the area safe for its visitors. This includes providing adequate security for customers. Although the property owner may not be responsible for all crimes, the owner is still required to take measure to protect the customers. This means installing security cameras, hiring guards and providing adequate lighting in areas such as parking lots.
What is Considered Negligent Security?
Negligent security is when the owner of the premises is responsible to keep the property safe for anyone who visits. Some common cases involving negligent security includes:
- Failure to provide adequate parking lot security (poor lighting, no security cameras, etc.)
- Assaults in stairwells or elevators
- Failure to screen/supervise those hired for security purposes
- Negligent security on college campuses
- Negligent security on store or mall property
