Defining the Issue: What Does Negligent Security Mean?
In lay terms, negligent security refers to a situation where a property owner or manager fails to take adequate steps to ensure the safety of their guests, tenants, or customers. Whether it’s a lack of proper lighting, outdated security cameras, or inadequately trained security personnel, such negligence can create dangerous environments that lead to serious injuries or worse.
The Elements of a Successful Negligent Security Claim
A victorious legal claim in a negligent security case generally hinges on proving four main elements:
- Obligation for Safety: Establishing that the property owner had a responsibility to keep the premises reasonably safe.
- Failure in Obligation: Proving that the property owner neglected this responsibility.
- Connection to Injury: Confirming that this neglect was the direct cause of your injury.
- Verification of Harm: Documenting the physical or emotional suffering you experienced.
Not surprisingly, property owners and their insurers want to shift all of the blame for the injury on the individual who instigated the attack. However, California law is well-established in apportioning liability among other responsible parties, including property owners who failed to provide a reasonable amount of security. At Trevino Law Firm, we know the law and how to prove a negligent security claim that holds all the proper parties accountable for their negligent or intentional misconduct.
