Negligent Security Can Prevent Client Safety

negligent securityOwners who are guilty of negligent security fail to protect their patrons from danger, and they may be held liable if the worst happens. The legal team at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. represents victims who have been attacked, abused, injured or killed due to inadequate security.

Factors Influencing Security Standards

Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises safe and protect patrons from harm. When they fail to uphold this duty, they can put people at risk for accidents and even violent attacks. There are various factors that impact a property’s required level of security, including:

  • Location of the property
  • Purpose of the property
  • Community crime rate
  • Previous incidents

For instance, a gas station in an area heavy with crime that has had multiple incidents in the past might require more extensive security measures than an apartment building in a low-crime neighborhood. However, regardless of where the security standard falls, the business or property owner has to provide sufficient security to keep its patrons safe.

Common Examples of Negligent Security

When a property or business owner fails to provide sufficient security and a patron is injured as a result, there may be grounds for a negligent security case. You should immediately consult with a New York City negligent security attorney if you have been injured on a property as a result of any of the following:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Ineffective surveillance
  • Delayed responses time to alerts or emergency calls
  • Improperly trained security guards
  • Lack of warnings about known dangers on the property

Common Crime Scenes

Negligent security can arise in a number of different circumstances where an owner or lessee failed to keep their property safe. Common places where negligent security injuries can arise include:

  • Shopping malls
  • Grocery stores
  • Parking garages or parking lots
  • Apartment buildings

  • Schools and universities
  • Sporting events
