Negligent Security Claims
There are many types of businesses that should have the necessary security measures. These include:
- Hotels and resorts
- Theme parks
- Apartment and condo complexes
- Malls and shopping centers
- Businesses with parking garages or lots
- Bars and nightclubs
- Sports arenas
- Concert halls
If you are a visitor or patron of any of the above and there is insufficient security, you could be the victim of a physical assault, sexual assault, robbery, or other types of violent crime. In this situation, an attorney can examine whether the company was negligent in its security efforts.
Some examples of negligent security include:
- Security cameras that do not work
- Security guards who are distracted on the job
- Locks that do not work
- Inadequate surveillance of parking structures, stairwells, or common areas
- Bouncers who allow risky patrons into an establishment
These are only a few examples of how a business could be liable for your injuries due to negligent security.
