What Is Negligent Security?
Property owners must, by law, provide safety and security for people who use their property as visitors, customers or guests. Owners can be considered negligent if they fail to identify or correct a potential danger that allows a hazardous condition to remain on their property. Under premises liability law, a property owner can be charged with negligent security if they fail to provide adequate security and someone is injured or killed.
Examples of negligent security include:
- Absence of security personnel
- Overzealous bouncers
- Inadequate lighting in stairwells and parking areas
- Broken locks
- Failure to adequately secure buildings
- Improperly vetting employees with criminal histories
- Assaults in hotels and other properties
- Failure to have security cameras
- Absence of emergency phones
