Ways Security Can be Negligent

Both commercial and residential property owners have a duty to make sure their properties are safe. They can be held liable for not ensuring that there is adequate lighting, locking gates, video cameras, and any necessary security guards. Negligent security practices commonly occur when there are too few security guards or insufficient lighting. Even when the number of security guards is sufficient, they may have had inadequate training or failed to coordinate when called to action. In addition, at large events, such as a concert, security may be overworked and unable to assist. 

Damages Caused by Negligent Security

When there is no form of security present or there is inadequate staffing, there is nothing to deter criminals from attacking. They may rob or attack a victim, using dangerous and deadly weapons for intimidation. More vicious attacks can also happen, leaving victims injuries and traumatized. 

Robberies and assaults can cause both physical and emotional trauma. While a victim may make a full physical recovery, the emotional trauma can take years to overcome. Victims may need medical treatment as well as counseling or therapy to deal with conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. Such attacks can have a negative impact on victims' quality of life, as they may feel unsafe leaving their homes.
