Negligent Security – The Basics

Negligent security cases fall under the area of premises liability law. When a property owner is accused of having negligent security, it means that a property owner did not guard a person and their personal property adequately. Negligent security cases may involve hotels, stores, restaurants, malls, parking garages, or apartment complexes. Commercial property owners do not have to guarantee the safety of everyone who enters the property, however, they must respond appropriately to foreseeable risks.
