Negligent security

If you are a guest or customer at a public facility, it’s not only common courtesy that safe premises are maintained: it’s the law.

When safety is overlooked at places like grocery stores, shopping centers, or apartment complexes, bad things can happen to good people. Examples of negligent security may include:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Limited security personnel
  • Faulty security cameras
  • Failure to perform employee background checks
  • Ignored reports of suspicious activity


The responsibility to maintain safe equipment, adequate lighting and other appropriate security measures falls on building/business owners and managers.

If you, a loved one or a family member has been injured or experienced tragic consequences as a result of negligent security, our personal injury attorneys can help. Contact our law firm to schedule your free consultation.
