Inadequate Security Injuries

For example, inadequate security cases commonly involve physical attacks, assaults, rape, robberies, sexual assault, shootings and fatal crimes.  The locations where inadequate security cases frequently happen include the following places where criminal can in the shadows:

  • an apartment complex
  • an assisted living complex
  • hotel premises and rooms
  • motel premises and rooms
  • office parks and campuses
  • parking garages and decks
  • parking lots, and
  • shopping centers


Within these areas, inadequate security injuries are often the result of one or more of the following conditions:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Failure to have or have enough security cameras
  • Failure to employ sufficient roaming security
  • Failure to prove a perimeter fence around the property
  • Failure to warn patrons and tenants of recurring criminal activity
  • Bad management

Inadequate Security Injuries

Crime happens every day. These are very specialized premises liability cases. It is an unfortunate part of our society.  No one can predict when and where crime will happen.  However, property and business owners have a duty to protect you against preventable criminal attacks.  In my experience, most inadequate security cases involve circumstances where there is evidence of a prior pattern of crime on or around the business property, and the business owner fails to take reasonable steps to address and prevent the problem.  Likewise, these cases most always involve very serious injury or death.

Commonly, insurance companies who defend the property or business owner will obviously try to shift the blame from the property/business owner to the criminal.  This makes sense, but a property/business owner has duty and responsibility as well if the attack could have reasonably been prevented.  Unfortunately, if the insurance company is not able to shift the blame to the criminal, the insurance company will then try to directly or indirectly unfairly blame you for “allowing yourself to be injured.”  Photographs and other evidence must be quickly preserved in order to prevail.
