Negligent Security Can Lead to Injury Claims and Lawsuits

By Law Office of Maria L. Rubio  Dec. 30, 2011 3:35p

If you are injured on another's premises in a criminal attack by a third party due to lack of adequate security measures by the owner or manager of the property, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim for damages. Security measures put into place to protect invitees, customers, patrons, guests, and residents from harm are considered to be part of the responsibility of landlords and premises owners in providing a reasonably safe environment. Such responsibility applies to the premises owners and managers of all types of establishments where guests and the public may gather or reside, such as apartment complexes, hotels, motels, condos, malls, bars, nightclubs, university and college dorms and campuses, office buildings, parking structures, entertainment venues, theaters, retail outlets, and more.

The legal concept of negligent security may also apply to terrorist attacks as well as cyberspace attacks, such as identity theft. In the case of terrorist attacks, if a property owner has been made aware of the fact that his or her premises may be particularly susceptible to a terrorist attack, he may be held liable for damages by those injured in such an attack if property security measures or warnings were not provided. Similarly, those attacked through cyberspace in sexual predator or identity theft attacks may be able to hold Web site hosts liable for damages. Institutions who electronically store personal information, such as account numbers or Social Security numbers, may be held responsible if they do not maintain adequate security to protect consumer information.
