Property owners have a responsibility to take reasonable precautions to provide a safe environment for anyone on the premises. When someone is injured or killed on another’s property, they may have a case against the property owner if the owner was negligent. Negligence means that the owner knew or reasonably should have known that the property was not safe, and still failed to take corrective action. Cases involving property owners’ negligence are premises liability cases.
One type of premises liability case is that of negligent security. These most often involve apartment and office buildings. Property owners must provide a reasonable level of security, whether it’s passive security in the form of properly locking doors, adequate lighting, and surveillance cameras, or active security by dedicated personnel such as doormen and security guards.
If you or someone you know was injured or killed while on property belonging to another, you may have a case of negligent security or other premises liability. In these cases, time is of the essence, because it’s important to document the nature of security at the property at the time you sustained an injury.
