Someone who is injured in a criminal attack on another person’s or business’s property may have what is called a negligent security case. In this type of case, an owner or occupier of land can be held liable if they failed to act reasonably to protect people on their property from a criminal attack. As with most premises liability cases, negligent security cases can be difficult to prove. However, if the property has had a number of criminal incidents in the past and the property owner still failed to institute reasonable measures to prevent further criminal acts, you may have a good claim.
