Premises Liability and Negligent Security Attorneys | Romanucci & Blandin
When you enter a property, you deserve to be safe from injury on the premises. Property owners are required to keep their property safe for anyone who comes onto it, and this potentially may require owners to provide sufficient security. If having inadequate security caused you, a family member or a loved one to become injured and sustain damages, the property owner may be held liable for the injuries that were sustained.
Each state varies in their laws regarding premises liability, but in general, most states perform a balance test which can determine if there were adequate security measures when the incident occurred. If a property has inadequate or negligent security, serious crimes can happen, including assaults, physical attacks, sexual assaults, abductions, muggings and stabbings.
Negligence and negligent security on a property can include:
- Absence of security guards
- Failing to properly assess employees and visitors
- Failing to secure entryways
- Having negligent security guards on duty
- Inadequate lighting
- Not having security cameras
- Open gates or loading docks
In premises liability cases involving negligent security, the plaintiff is required to prove that:
- The property owner did not protect people from injury
- The property owner was legally required to protect people from criminal activity
- The property owner knew or should have known the possibility that harm could occur
- The property owner had an opportunity to take safety precautions
