What Does Negligent Security Mean?

Premises liability and negligent security means that a property owner did not take care to fix a situation that led to a violent crime. As a result of the property owner's negligence, a person or some people were injured or killed due to the violent crime.

Just as with normal premises liability issues, property owners have a duty to keep their property in a safe condition. Negligent security simply means that there was a security issue that should have been known or was known and because nothing was done about the issue, an injury or death resulted.
