Negligent Security

(Crime Victims)

Businesses and landowners have a duty to exercise reasonable care to protect against foreseeable criminal conduct.  This duty is applicable to all types of business such as:


  • Apartment Complexes

  • Hotels and Motels

  • Restaurants

  • Nightclubs and Bars

  • Retail Stores

  • Malls and Shopping Centers

  • Parking Lots


Therefore, businesses must implement adequate security measures to protect their customers and tenants from physical harm, especially when there has been prior violent crime at a property or the property is located in a high crime area.


Unfortuantely, many businesses and landowners cut corners on security measures to save money and put their customers and tenants at risk of physical harm.  Common security problems include the following:


  • Failure to hire a security company

  • Inadequate lighting

  • Broken gates, fences and other barriers

  • Deferred maintenance

  • Overgrown landscaping

  • Lack of video surveillance

  • Problems with trespass, vandalism and loitering


These inadequate security measures can result in innocent customers and tenants being assaulted, stabbed, shot, sexually assaulted and even murdered.
