Security Negligence: Injury Claims
Many individuals are completely unprepared for any dangers or hazards that
may be waiting on another individual's or entity's property. In
public places such as shopping malls or theme parks, there are occasions
when violence erupts and individuals are injured due to these various
dangers and attacks. Generally, these public areas will employ the use
of security guards in order to minimize the damage done to visitors and
customers. There are many cases, however, where
security guards do not perform their duties and individuals are hurt where a reasonable security guard would have been able to prevent this.
There are essentially five elements that must be proven in order to establish
a claim for security negligence:
- A legal duty was owed to any guest, visitor or customer who came onto the property
- A reasonable individual would have recognized the danger of a crime of
assault or danger on the property
- There was a failure on the part of the guard or security individual to
provide a reasonable level of security protection that was not provided
by the land owner or the Lessee
- The failure to provide reasonable security protection directly resulted
in damage or injury to an individual
- Substantial injury or damage was caused due to this breach of duty
If you have been injured in an accident where there was a breach of duty
that resulted in your injuries then you may be able to file a lawsuit
for monetary compensation for your injuries.
