What Is a 'Negligent Security' Claim?
Negligent security claims are a type of premises liability case. Criminal assaults are the basis for many of these claims, but cases can also involve injuries or significant other losses related to accidents or theft.
The basic idea behind most such claims is that the property owner breached their legal duty to maintain a safe premises by not doing something they should have.

Was It a Reasonably Foreseeable Result?
Whether it involves a rape inside an apartment complex, an accidental drowning in a hotel swimming pool or a carjacking assault in a dimly lit restaurant parking lot — the question of foreseeability is the key question that must be answered.
For instance, if a retail business knows there has been an increase in purse snatching and robbery incidents in the area around their store but does not bother to replace the broken lights in their parking lot, they could be held liable if someone is later attacked and seriously injured because of an assault that was made possible by the inadequate lighting in their parking lot.
