Where Can Negligent Security Occur?

When you go out to a public location such as a bar, sporting event, or music performance, you expect that there are proper safety measures in place to protect the attending guests. However, this isn’t always the case.

There are many instances where a property owner or landlord fails to provide adequate security on their property, which results in someone being injured due to negligence. This negligence is known as negligent security and it is meant to hold the landlords responsible for injuries caused on their property due to negligence, as they have a duty of care to provide a secure location.

Common Locations Negligent Security Happens

Property owners are required to act with a duty of care, which means:

  • Providing adequate security against crimes, within reason

  • Providing reasonable security based on crime-rate statistics in the area

  • Making criminal activity known to their guests and being able to prove there is proper security measures in place

When the property owners don’t act with this duty of care, they may be held liable for recovering damages to those injured on their property.

Some of the most common locations acts of negligent security take place include:

  • Apartment complexes

  • Hotels

  • Music festivals

  • Night clubs

  • Bars

  • Sporting events

  • Shopping malls

  • Restaurants

As you can see, negligent security can happen nearly anywhere, which is why it’s important to understand your rights. Speaking with an experienced Atlanta personal injury attorney following an injury due to negligence is in your best interest to protect your rights and overall well-being.
