Negligent Security Claims in Clearwater
Security Breaches Resulting in Injuries and Deaths
Places like banks, restaurants, apartment complexes, college campuses and hotels are expected to meet certain standards when it comes to security. There are also many other types of businesses and locales in which security measures need to be established in order to keep customers, visitors or residents reasonably safe. When property owners, managers and operators do not follow through with their responsibility to keep their premises secure, individuals who are on those properties can end up being seriously injured. In the worst cases, some individuals are even killed because of these security breaches.
For example, if a Hotel or bar fails to have security in an area which frequently has issues, the hotel or bar can be held liable for injuries which occur in those areas. Often Hotels or businesses advertise a secure environment, but do little to actually provide one. Or, if the organizers of a concert do not provide enough security personnel for the event, this can result in out-of-control crowds where concert attendees can easily become injured. Here are some of the many different ways in which negligent security can occur:
- Unsecured gates, doors and other entrances
- Insufficient lighting
- Lack of video surveillance where needed or required
- Lack of security guards where needed or required
- Improperly trained security personnel
- Lack of general security monitoring
