Most inadequate security cases arise in high-traffic areas that attract criminal activity. Those areas include hotels or motels, retail stores, college campuses, offices, parking lots, restaurants, night clubs and apartment buildings. Often the criminal incident is not a first-time occurrence at the property, and, the owner may be aware of the potential for criminal activity. A negligent security claim asserts that, despite a history of criminal activity on the property, the establishment or owner failed to take proper security precautions to prevent further crime, violence and other safety hazards. Common allegations against the property owner or business include the failure to:
- Hire adequately trained security guards.
- Install proper lighting.
- Install adequate locks on gates and doors.
- Secure entrances.
- Install adequate alarm systems.
- Install security cameras.
Negligent security claims are not limited to the mere failure to take security precautions. Instead, owners may be liable for the careless hiring and retention or inadequate training of staff. Untrained and careless security personnel, in many cases, are no different than no personnel at all.
