Examples of Negligent Security

Negligent, or inadequate, security can take many forms and varies based on the type of premises as well as the activities taking place. No one can predict every danger that may arise on premises, but property owners do have a duty to consider potential threats to their visitors and take the proper security precautions. When a property owner fails to do so, and an accident or intentional act of violence occurs like a robbery, assault, shooting, stabbing, or homicide, they can be held liable for any harm inflicted upon their guest.

While there are many ways in which a property owner can fail to take proper security measures, some issues arise more often than others. Some of the most common examples of negligent security include the following:

  • No security cameras,
  • No functioning security cameras,
  • Untrained or unqualified security guards,
  • Lack of security guards,
  • Doors that cannot be locked,
  • Broken or missing lighting,
  • Broken or missing fencing,
  • Failure to properly assess employees or guests,
  • Overly aggressive security guards,
  • Failure to secure all entrances and exits,
  • No alarm system, and
  • Malfunctioning alarm system

Injuries Caused by Negligent Security

Because the harm caused by negligent security usually involves intentional, violent acts, the injuries sustained in negligent security claims are often more serious than those in other types of premises liability cases. Injuries reported after negligent security incidents in the Boston area have included:

  • Traumatic head injuries (TBI),
  • Skull fractures,
  • Facial trauma,
  • Broken bones,
  • Contusions and lacerations,
  • Puncture wounds,
  • Crushing injuries,
  • Gunshot wounds,
  • Blood loss,
  • Internal bleeding,
  • Internal injuries,
  • Nerve damage,
  • Sexual injuries,
  • Coma, and
  • Death

Compensation for Negligent Security Claims

Victims of injuries inflicted because of inadequate security deserve to be fully compensated by property owners responsible for their care while on their premises. Compensation can include coverage of all medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and loss of future income and benefits in addition to damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress, disability, disfigurement, and for the loss of enjoyment of life.
