Valenzuela Law Firm, PA | Trial Attorney
Attorney Henry E. Valenzuela

Holding Property Owners Accountable For Negligent Security

A negligent security lawsuit is a type of premises liability claim resulting from injuries sustained as a result of being assaulted while using a business or privately owned property. To be successful in negligent security litigation, your attorney will need to prove that there was inadequate security on the property, which resulted in a failure to prevent foreseeable criminal attacks on the premises.

Individuals who have been beaten, sexually assaulted or killed while living in an apartment complex, staying at a hotel, or shopping at malls may have claims against the property owners and sub-contracted parties for negligent security. In many cases, premises liability requires thorough investigation and the application of generally accepted security standards and practices. This may involve examining crime statistics, event history, community standards, and specific risk considerations to determine whether a physical assault was foreseeable.
