Negligent security of a building, apartment complex, parking lot, storage facility, or other property can lead to violent crimes and/or other destructive acts. When property owners or businesses, leasing the space, fail to keep the premises secure, they create an unacceptable risk of attacks and/or other types of criminal behavior. A negligent security case may involve a hotel guest or store patron who becomes a victim of a rape or sexual assault while using a bathroom.
There are industry-accepted standards for adequate lighting, supervision of grounds, functional room locks, and other safety measures. You have a right to be kept safe when on the grounds of a business or organization. Injuries received as a result of negligent security can be more traumatic than ordinary premises liability injuries. Negligent security cases, generally, involve intentional acts of harm that could have realistically been prevented.
Negligent security victims have the right to seek justice.Call our office today for a free and confidential consultation: 770-854-0400.
