Negligent Security

Businesses and property owners are required under the law to provide sufficient security in order to prevent potential criminal activity from occurring on their premises. They can be held liable for damages in a negligent security lawsuit if they do not have reasonable security measures implemented and a person becomes a victim of a crime while on their property.

Cases involving negligent security are a type of premises liability action where the focus is on the duty that businesses and property owners owe to the public for taking reasonable steps to ensure any known or foreseeable security risks are addressed.
