Common Examples of Negligent Security

When you go to a sporting event, movie theater, restaurant, or bar, you expect the owner of the property to have done their job to ensure the location is safe. However, all too often, landlords and property owners are negligent about their property security which allows criminal acts to take place in public places.

Property owners have a responsibility to protect those who come to their establishment. When they neglect the responsibility to provide a safe area for their guests, they deserve to be held accountable for their negligent actions.

What is Negligent Security?

Negligent security is summarized as the failure to protect individuals in a public area from criminal acts. Public places include:

  • Sporting events
  • Clubs
  • Bars
  • Parks
  • Movie theaters
  • Apartment complexes
  • Music festivals

Negligent security claims allow victims who were injured—due to a crime in a public area—the ability to seek compensation for their damages.

Common Examples of Negligent Security

Since criminal acts of violence can take place virtually anywhere, there are many occasions in which the property owner can be held liable for not providing adequate security on their public property. Some examples include:

  • Attacks in parking garages – Due to lack of proper lighting
  • Injuries at a sporting event – Whether it is due to a lack of security or no metal detectors, etc.
  • Sexual assault in public places – If proper security wasn’t present
  • Shootings in public places
  • In a club/bar – If the proper security/bouncers aren’t present

These are just a few of the most commonly seen examples of negligent security, it’s important to remember that criminal acts may happen at any time.
