What Is Inadequate Security?
It is a form of negligence, where the property owner should have taken certain measures to ensure the safety of people, who had a legal right to be on the property, but they failed to do so. Some common examples are:
- When the owner of an apartment complex, who knows that there have been or could be sexual assaults, or robberies on their property, fails to provide enough security or install proper security cameras to help deter those crimes and someone suffers an injury because of it.
- When the owner of a nightclub, or restaurant or other business establishment, who knows that there have been or could be assaults at his property, fails to hire additional security staff for his club or fails to install proper security cameras, and somebody suffers an injury because of it.
- When the owner of a property fails to maintain proper lighting or repair existing security measures in their parking lot, and someone suffers an injury because of it.
Why Is The Property Owner At Fault?
A person committing a crime is legally responsible for compensating victims they injure, however they are often either never found or have no ability to compensate the victim. However, if a property owner did not provide enough security, which led to an injury, they are responsible. Often, their insurance company will compensate victims, who are injured due to their negligence. The courts, over the years, have forced the property owner to compensate victims for their injuries.
What Is My Case Worth?
Normally, if a property owner is negligent for not providing enough security, their insurance company will compensate victims for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, mental anguish, among other losses. Insurance companies calculate pain and suffering based on the extent of the injury and how long a person has pain. Typically, broken bone injuries are more painful than sprains and strains to muscles and ligaments. Since every case is unique, you should contact an experienced inadequate security lawyer to make sure you get all the compensation you deserve.
Injured At a Mall?
Mall owners and property managers have a duty to keep their shopping centers safe. Malls are often large and people are usually free to move about them with very little restrictions. However, there are still steps that a mall owner should take to deter criminal conduct. Mall owners often hire security guards, but sometimes they are not properly trained, or there are too few to be effective. Also, security cameras can be used to help to deter would-be criminals.

Injured In a Parking Lot?
Many cases of inadequate security arise due to poorly maintained parking lots. Victims are vulnerable in parking lots because they are out in the open and often alone. They sometimes have their hands full with bags or other items, and they could be preoccupied by a cell phone or other device. These vulnerabilities are enhanced when there is poor lighting in the parking lot, or when the criminal knows that there are no security cameras watching the parking lot. Landlord’s and business owners have a duty to keep their parking lots safe for their guests. Read more.
Injured On a College Campus?
It’s becoming more and more common to learn about cases where a college student, male or female, was assaulted on campus. Colleges and universities owe a duty to their students and employees of the school to keep them safe. Many colleges take some precautions, such as hiring students as security guards or using electronic ID cards to gain access to buildings, but these security measures are just the tip of the iceberg.

Injured At a Hotel?
Hotels owe a high duty of care to guests because hotel owners often have much more information about crime in the area than a hotel guest. It’s difficult for a visitor to a city to determine whether the hotel is located in a high or low crime area. Hotel guests reasonably rely on the hotel to provide adequate security, but when the hotel has failed to do so, it could lead to the injury of its guests. Read more.
Injured At a Apartment Complex?
Property managers owe a duty to keep their tenants safe from crimes that they reasonably know, or should know, could happen. Some examples include: ensuring that the doors on your personal apartment work properly, installing an electronic locking mechanism on common entrances to the apartment complex, or employing security personnel to look for suspicious activity.

Injured At a Bar Or Nightclub?
Even though a bar or a nightclub employs bouncers or other security guards, they could still have provided inadequate security. If the business knew of prior incidents, or should have known about prior incidents, but didn’t take any extra precautions when it should have, the business could still be responsible. Read more.
