The duty of a property owner is to provide protection from foreseeable harm for their patrons and visitors. It is required that property owners keep their property safe from dangerous situations and conditions. If property owners fail to fulfill this duty and injuries happen, they can be held liable for dangerous conditions on their premises. If a property owner does not provide sufficient security, negligent security claims are usually filed. Negligent security cases require thorough investigations of the scene of the crime. Our member negligent security lawyers will investigate the property, the property and its surrounding area’s history of crime, the crime statistics of the community and any considerations for risks. Determining these factors can help lawyers figure out if your attack was foreseeable. If you are a victim of an assault and you believe it was preventable if the property had utilized proper security, contact Louisiana Attorney Group so we can match you with skilled negligent security lawyers.
Issues With Negligent Security
Negligent security can result in such crimes as beatings, sexual assaults, attacks and even death. Common issues involved in a negligent security case can include:
- Insufficient lighting
- Inadequate surveillance
- Insufficient security patrolling the property
- Forced entry
- Inadequate training
It goes without saying that crimes can happen anywhere at any time. However, common places where crime is more likely to occur include:
- Parking lots
- Nursing homes
- Gas stations
- Shopping centers
- Sports stadiums
- Amusement parks
- Cruise ships
Although some attacks will still happen even with the use of the best security, many attacks could have been stopped if adequate security had been in place. To have a successful negligent security case, it will have to be proven that there was not adequate security on the property, that the property owners knew or should have known of the risks and because of that the property owners failed to prevent an attack that was foreseeable on their premises.
