Denver Inadequate Security Lawyers

Those who own and manage properties have various responsibilities to maintain the premises so they are safe for those who visit or use the properties. Among these responsibilities is the obligation to provide adequate security to prevent assaults or other harm to those at the property.

When property owners or managers fail to provide adequate security – and this failure causes harm, the victims can:

  • Have various legal options for holding the negligent parties liable
  • Be entitled to financial recoveries for their suffering, injuries and losses.

Forms of Inadequate Security

Failure to provide sufficient security can take many forms, including (but not limited to):

  • A lack of security features – This can include an absence of alarms, locks, security gates, security cameras and/or security guards.
  • Inappropriate or improper security – This may involve poor lighting, as well as an insufficient number of security cameras, locking doors, security gates and/or security guards.
  • Negligent security – This can include broken alarms, locks, windows, security gates and/or security cameras. It may also involve unqualified or negligent security guards, which may be associated with a property owner’s or manager’s failure to conduct background checks during the hiring process.

These forms of inadequate security can occur at various settings, including (but not limited to):
