What is a negligent security claim?

A negligent security claim is a type of personal injury claim which asserts that a property owner or manager’s failure to take safety precautions led to a person’s harm. It allows victims of assault, rape, or robbery to file a civil claim against a property owner or manager. In cases of homicide or manslaughter, it allows the family of the victim to hold the owner/operator liable.

At Smith McBroom, we help people who suffered catastrophic injuries because of negligent or inadequate security. Our lawyers also coordinate your civil claim with any criminal charges filed against the assailant.
