Inadequate Security Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Keeping a building or property reasonably safe for guests is the responsibility of all property owners. For business and commercial property owners, this can include providing adequate security to prevent or deter criminal activity. Shootings, assaults, attacks and rapes that occur at commercial properties are less likely to occur when there are security measures in place. If a guest, tenant or customer on a commercial property is injured due to inadequate security, the property owner may be financially liable for damages.

What is Inadequate Security?

The amount of security needed at a business or commercial property to maintain safety varies. Property and business owners are expected to gauge the risk and determine the amount of security that is needed to provide reasonable safety for those on their property. Property in low crime areas or businesses without a history of criminal activity may need less security. If there is a history of crime, security measures may need to be enhanced. Some components of security include:

  • Security cameras
  • Well-lit parking lots, alleys, stairwells and hallways
  • Security guards or patrols
  • Locked entrances and gates
  • Well-maintained buildings (fixing broken locks, windows and other security factors)

If a property owner knows crimes have been committed in the past, yet does not provide adequate security to prevent future crimes, he/she may be liable for violent crimes. If security measures are in place, but not maintained, this can also lead to violent crimes and injuries. Each case of injury caused by lack of security must be evaluated individually to determine whether the property owner maintained a safe environment and whether they are liable.

If you were seriously injured or lost a loved one in a violent crime perpetrated at a business or public facility, contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law today. We can help determine whether inadequate security may have contributed to the crime and explore your legal options.
