What is Negligent Security?

Negligent security refers to the failure of property owners or managers to implement adequate security measures, resulting in increased risks and susceptibility to various crimes, including sexual assault. This failure to protect individuals within their premises can lead to significant harm and trauma.

The Impact of Sexual Assault

Sexual assault inflicts profound physical, emotional, and psychological trauma on victims. It can result in ongoing mental health challenges, disrupt relationships, and drastically affect the overall well-being and quality of life of those affected.

Establishing Liability for Negligent Security and Sexual Assault

In legal terms, establishing liability involves demonstrating that property owners or managers breached their duty of care by failing to provide adequate security measures, directly leading to instances of sexual assault. This negligence can form the basis for holding them accountable for the harm caused to victims.

Duty of Care in Providing Security

Property owners and managers have a legal obligation, known as the duty of care, to ensure a reasonably safe environment for individuals within their premises. This duty extends to implementing appropriate security measures based on potential risks and foreseeable harm.

Common Types of Negligent Security Measures

Negligent security measures include inadequate lighting, malfunctioning locks, absence or ineffective surveillance systems, insufficient security personnel, and disregarding known security risks. These deficiencies significantly increase the likelihood of sexual assault and other criminal activities.

Evaluating the Premises for Security Risks

Thorough assessments of premises are crucial to identify vulnerabilities and potential security risks. This evaluation helps property owners/managers address and rectify weaknesses to enhance overall security.

Implementing Adequate Security Measures

To mitigate risks, property owners/managers should proactively improve security by ensuring proper lighting, functional locks, effective surveillance systems, adequate security personnel, and addressing known security threats promptly.

Training Staff and Employees on Security Protocols

Educating staff on security protocols empowers them to recognize potential threats and respond appropriately. Well-trained employees contribute significantly to maintaining a safe environment and prompt handling of security concerns.

Reporting and Responding to Incidents of Sexual Assault

Establishing clear and empathetic protocols for reporting and responding to sexual assault incidents is essential. Immediate and sensitive responses can aid victims and contribute to effective legal proceedings.

Seeking Compensation for Victims of Sexual Assault

Victims of sexual assault due to negligent security have rights to seek compensation for physical, emotional, and financial damages. Breit Biniazan specializes in advocating for victims, guiding them through legal processes, and pursuing justice and compensation on their behalf.
