Negligent Security

While you may feel that a property owner is protecting you from danger (negligent security, inadequate security), it is often the case that property owners put profits over safety, and when that happens dangerous predators seize the opporunity to attack.

No Locks, Missing Locks, Non-Functioning Locks & Unlocked Windows & Doors

Business owners, hotels, convenience stores, landlords, etc. must provide their customers, patrons, Non-Functioning Lockstenants and employees with safe premises and ensure their safety from attacks and violent crime by criminals. While there is no explicit list of measures that a landlord or business owner must take to protect others from risk of personal injury or even wrongful death because of a crime from a third party; they must be able to show that a crime could have been prevented had reasonable security measures been enacted.

Too often, property and business owners put profits over safety and fail to install or maintain even minimum security equipment like functioning locks. In some cases the locks are old and warn or do not use the latest technology (card locks, card swipes, electronic doors, RFIDs, etc.). In some cases there could be a one minute delay between the time you left the room and when the door actually locked.
