Negligent security covers a variety of negligent or reckless situations. However, in essence, negligent security falls into two categories: no security measures in place when there should have been, or inadequate security.
Examples of negligent security:
- Inadequate lighting
- Lack of or malfunctioning locks, fencing, or gates
- Lack of or malfunctioning video cameras
- Lack of or malfunctioning alarms or other warnings
- Failure to have security personnel
- Security personnel that acted negligent, reckless or caused intentional harm
- Failure to have metal detectors
- Inadequate security personnel
- Lack of sufficient policies and procedures
- Improperly trained security personnel
In the eyes of the law, property owners and event operators have a duty to guard against possible risks and dangers. You only need to turn on the news to see that violence can happen just about anywhere:
- Residential and commercial buildings, private or public
- Parking lots and structures
- Schools and colleges
- Hospitals and health clinics
- Nightclubs, bars, and restaurants
- Concerts and entertainment events
- Amusement parks
- Political events
- Sporting events
- Shopping Malls
- Nursing homes
- And many others.
Negligent security cases are often complex because there can be more than one defendant:
- Property owners
- Some leasing a property
- Third party security operators,
- Event producers and organizers
- Federal, state or municipal governments
Not only can gathering evidence be difficult, but determining the defendants, their various contracts, and their respective policies and procedures can be daunting too.
