What is Negligent Security?
Negligent security is a term used to describe unsafe conditions resulting from inadequate security. A person may file a negligent security claim if they are injured on another person’s property and their injury was the result of inadequate security on the property.
No two negligent security cases are the same. These cases are fact-specific. This means that the security precautions that are considered adequate to ensure safety in one location may be considered negligent when applied to another location. There are various factors that influence the level of security of a property. These include:
The location of the property
The property’s purpose i.e. what happens within the property
A history of incidents in the location or in the building
Crime rates in the area
For example, a retail store located in a high-crime neighborhood would require more security measures than one located in a low-crime neighborhood.
Property owners are generally required to reasonably foresee possible crime and therefore take steps to ensure the security of their premises. Security measures may include:
Installing adequate security lighting
Installing a fence
Installing security cameras and ensuring that they are working
Using adequate locks
Providing staff members with training to ensure that they are able to respond to threats properly
Employing security guards
Ensuring adequate surveillance on the property
Providing adequate signage alerting people of known dangers on the property
