security of their customers, guests, and visitors. If an owner fails to
fulfill his or her obligation due to negligent security measures, and
someone is injured, assaulted, raped or killed, then the owner may be
liable to pay the victim compensation.

Elements of Negligent Security
A negligent security claim is a form of negligence. In order to prove negligence,
the injured party must prove that the property owner failed to act with
reasonable care and thereby caused harm. A negligent security claim arises
when a third party commits a criminal offense against the victim on the
defendant’s property, if the potential for criminal activity was
foreseeable and had occurred in the past.
The elements of a negligent security case include the following:
- The defendant property owner had a legal duty to provide adequate security
- The defendant failed to take reasonable care to provide adequate security
- The victim suffered injury or damage due to the defendant’s failure
to provide adequate security
Negligent security cases often involve an injury to a person as a result
of a criminal assault or robbery at commercial premises. These typically
occur at shopping centers, malls, hotels, motels, schools, office buildings,
and parking garages.
