Negligent security, also referred to as “inadequate security,” falls under the umbrella of premises liability. While slip and fall accidents are a bit more straightforward, being the victim of a violent crime on someone else’s property due to inadequate security can be quite complex because the person responsible for the property may be held liable for damages.

What is Negligent Security?

Premises liability law requires property owners or managers to maintain a safe property and to take care of any foreseeable hazards before they hurt anybody; this includes violent crime. If a property is located in a known high-crime area, the owner may be required to take reasonable measures to prevent crimes on the premises, such as apartments, hotels, college dorms, malls, bars, night clubs, schools and amusement parks.

At its core, negligent security falls under two categories: failure to have security or inadequate security. Below are some of the most common types of negligent security:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Lack of or malfunctioning locks or gates
  • Lack of or malfunctioning surveillance cameras
  • Lack of or malfunctioning alarms
  • Failure to have security
  • Security personnel acted negligently or reckless
  • Lack of metal detectors
  • Inadequate security personnel
  • Lack of sufficient safety policies
  • Improperly trained security

Negligent security cases are often complex and involve several possible liable parties, such as property owners, leasers, third-party security operators, event producers and organizers, cities, counties, and state public entities. For this reason, it’s important to enlist the legal guidance of an experienced Philadelphia premises liability attorney. Kwartler Manus, LLC has the resources, reputation, and seasoned lawyers to get you the justice and compensation you deserve.
