Negligent Security

Hazards Met With Action

    When Safety is Compromised, We Make it Right

    Negligent security encompasses situations where property owners or managers fail to take adequate security measures, leading to harm or injuries suffered by individuals on their premises. Understanding the legal implications and potential recourse for victims of negligent security is crucial in navigating such cases effectively.

    Legal Considerations for Negligent Security in Nevada

    Duty of Care: Property owners and managers owe a duty of care to maintain a safe environment for visitors, customers, tenants, or guests on their premises. This duty includes implementing reasonable security measures to prevent foreseeable criminal acts or incidents of violence.

    Foreseeability: Negligent security claims often hinge on the concept of foreseeability, which requires property owners to anticipate and address potential security risks based on factors such as the property’s location, history of criminal activity, and known threats in the area.

    Inadequate Security Measures: Examples of inadequate security measures that may give rise to negligent security claims include insufficient lighting, broken locks or security gates, lack of surveillance cameras, failure to hire security personnel, and failure to respond to known security concerns.

    Proximate Cause: To establish liability for negligent security, plaintiffs must demonstrate that the property owner’s failure to provide adequate security measures was a proximate cause of the harm or injuries suffered. This requires showing a direct link between the lack of security and the resulting harm.
