What Constitutes Negligent Security?
In personal injury law, “negligent security” is a type of premises liability claim that involves an individual being injured on third-party premises due to inadequate security measures. It occurs when a property owner fails to take reasonable precautions to prevent foreseeable harm caused by criminal activities or other dangerous incidents on their premises.
Negligent security extends to various property types, such as:
- Parks and zoos
- Apartment complexes
- Gyms and fitness centers
- Parking garages and parking lots
- Schools and college campuses
- Malls and shopping centers
- Bars and restaurants
- Public transit, such as bus stations and airports
Under New Mexico law, negligent security is typically determined by the failure to uphold a certain standard of care that property owners are obligated to provide. Common factors that may contribute to negligent security include:
- Neglecting to monitor or control access to the property
- Inadequate or faulty security systems, including CCTVs, alarms, and locks
- Absence or lack of security personnel where required
- Insufficient lighting in parking lots and other potentially hazardous areas
- Failure to respond to known security risks, such as previous crimes or dangers within the area
When adequate security criteria aren't met, it can open the door to danger, including harm to visitors or patrons. If you’re a victim of negligent security measures, our negligent security attorneys can protect your rights while fighting to hold negligent property owners accountable for the harm they’ve caused.
