How to Establish Liability in a Negligent Security Case
In order to hold a property owner liable for negligent security, it must be shown that they were able to foresee injury or harm as a consequence of their negligence. This can be accomplished through evidence of crime patterns, location of previous crimes, types of crimes in the area, and the time of the crime.
In addition to this, it is extremely helpful to prove that adequate security measures, such as a security camera system, silent alarms, non-tinted windows, unobstructed window signs, a lighted parking lot, or other elements, would have deterred the crime that occurred.
