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.
