How is Negligent Security Proven?

Negligent security actions can be incredibly complex cases, making them difficult to prove. When hiring a lawyer to represent you in a negligent security case, be sure that they have experience handling and winning these cases and are willing to prepare and take the case to trial. There are many elements that your legal team will have to prove, including:

  • The property owner or manager had a duty of care
  • The plaintiff was on the property legally (not trespassing)
  • Criminal activity on the premises or in the area was foreseeable
  • The property owner did not provide sufficient security on the premises
  • The plaintiff was injured or killed due to the lack of sufficient security
  • The plaintiff suffered damages, monetarily or physically, as a result of the criminal act on the premises

Injuries caused by a third-party on an unsafe premises can be catastrophic in nature. Brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even death can be the result of a violent crime. A negligent security claim can help you recover damages, such as extensive medical costs or future and past lost wages.

These cases oftentimes require experts to help prove that negligent security occurred. Expert witnesses can shed light on background crime data of the area, the foreseeability of dangerous crime on the premises, and whether there was any security or sufficient security present to protect from criminal activity.

Every negligent security case has unique situations and circumstances. It is important that you retain an attorney with the experience handling these types of cases and the legal and financial resources necessary to properly develop a case before trial. Thomas J.
