Who Is Liable for Negligent Security Injuries?
After surviving a violent attack such as a sexual assault or mass shooting, you will likely be dealing with intense psychological trauma for a long time to come. It may become difficult for you to even visit new places, for fear that your safety and security will be violated once again. Whether you sustain life-threatening injuries or not, these wounds may take many years to heal and necessitate long-term assistance from health professionals.
By holding the right party liable for these serious losses, you may be able to regain some measure of confidence and peace of mind, knowing that you have the financial resources to move forward from the attack. However, determining – and proving – liability in a negligent security case can be difficult. Although the criminal is primarily responsible for your injuries, there could be many different parties who failed to consider your safety.
Common parties in a negligent security lawsuit:
- The property owner
- The property manager or operator
- Security professionals
- Security contractors or service providers
- Third parties
