What Is Negligent Security?
Negligent security (also called “inadequate security”) is a legal cause of action that can be filed against a property owner when an individual is injured on the property due to a lack of reasonable security. Such claims acknowledge that if the owner or manager of the property where the accident occurred had provided better security measures, the incident likely would not have occurred in the first place. While commercial properties are typically targeted in such lawsuits, residential property owners can be held accountable in certain cases as well.
Negligent security claims are often filed against:
- Apartment complexes
- Clinics and other medical facilities
- Parking garages
- Retail stores
- Shopping malls
Negligent security might look like:
- Poor lighting conditions
- Lack of functioning security cameras
- Failure to perform background checks on tenants or employees
- Broken locks
- Broken security systems
- Lack of gates, barriers, and other criminal deterrents
Damages Available in a Negligent Security Claim
In most cases, plaintiffs are eligible to recover both:
- Economic damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage; and
- Noneconomic damages, which grant you compensation as a way to make up for physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, PTSD, embarrassment, and other non-monetary losses that resulted from your accident.
The exact amount of compensation you will be eligible to receive depends on factors unique to your specific case, such as where it occurred, how badly you were injured, how affluent the defendant is, and so on. By consulting with an attorney, you can get a better idea of what your legal options are.
