Negligent Security

If you have been injured on someone else’s property because they failed to provide adequate security on the premises, you may have a claim against the property owner. Such cases may involve assaults in such venues as hotels or motels, shopping malls, apartment buildings or similar properties. When property owners should have foreseen the possibility of criminal attacks but failed to provide adequate security measures, they may be liable for damages to victims of injuries or wrongful death.
