Inadequate Security and Premises Liability Litigation
When a property owner or a party in control of a property fails to provide security to make the property safe, the owner/occupier can be held responsible and legally liable for inadequate security.
Knowing when you have an inadequate security case can be complex and proving the responsibility of the property owner/occupier may also be challenging. A Boston injury lawyer at Swartz & Swartz, P.C. can help.
Examples of Inadequate Security
The following are examples of situations that may give rise to a personal injury claim for inadequate security:
- A child falling into a swimming pool and drowning because there were no locks or lifeguards present
- A person suffering a mugging or sexual assault in a building if security guards do not respond
- A person being assaulted by overzealous security personnel at a nightclub or other private venue
Security failure is especially concerning when it involves a failure to prevent illegal acts, such as assault and battery or sexual assault, from occurring. However, a security failure can also result from the lack of training or supervision provided to an employee in a school or nursing home setting.
