What is inadequate security?
The world we live in is unpredictable and unfortunately, even the safest places can be plagued by unpredictable danger. That being said, public places need to take measures to protect the people that enter their establishment. This is true for shopping malls, grocery stores, parking lots, hotels, restaurants, movie theaters, bars, schools, apartments, and more. Serious incidents can occur if a property owner fails to include the following security measures:
- Installation of an adequate amount of security cameras
- Monitoring security cameras for any alarming behavior
- Providing well-trained security guards to keep guests safe
- Providing adequate lighting for walkways, parking lots, and all other facilities
- Ensuring that locks on all doors are working properly
Proving Negligence in a Lawsuit
If you have been injured on another person’s property because they failed to keep it safe and secure, it may be beneficial to bring a case against the property owner. In order to have a successful claim, you will have to prove that the property owner was negligent, which is known as fulfilling the burden of proof. An experienced inadequate security attorney can help you find solid evidence that the property owner did not take the necessary precautions that would have kept you safe. While fulfilling the burden of proof can be challenging, retaining a skilled attorney can be very beneficial for your case. Some of the methods that are often used to prove inadequate security include the following:
- If criminal activity took place, it is beneficial to file a police report
- Obtain a statement from any witnesses
- Obtain surveillance footage, if available
- Take pictures of the inadequate conditions
