• What Factors Influence Security Standards?

    So what constitutes adequate security and what constitutes negligence? Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises safe and protect patrons from harm; when they fail to uphold this standard, they put people at risk for accidents or even violent attacks.

    A property’s required level of security depends on factors like:

    • Location of the property
    • Purpose of the property
    • Community crime rate
    • Previous incidents

    A gas station in a crime-heavy area that has had incidents in the past might, for example, require more extensive security measures than an elementary school in a low-crime neighborhood. Regardless of where the security standard falls, however, it is the business or property owner’s job to meet it.

  • What Are Examples of Negligent Security?

    When the business or property owner fails to provide and maintain proper security and a person is injured, there may be grounds for a negligent security case. Talk to an attorney if you’ve been injured on a property with:

    • Inadequate lighting
    • Ineffective surveillance
    • A delayed response time to alerts or emergency calls
    • Improperly trained security guards
    • A lack of warnings about known dangers on the property
