Adams | Coogler focuses on defending business owners, property managers, security companies, and their insurers from Negligent Security claims. Negligent Security claims often arise due to criminal acts that occur on a business owner’s property. The victims of those crimes often seek to hold the business owner or security professionals responsible by claiming that the security was in some way lacking. The claimants often attack the amount or type of security, the failure of the business owner or security company to adhere to industry standards, or failures to adhere to the companies’ own policies and procedures.
Negligent security claims are complex and often involving multiple parties, disputes as to legal duties, and competing expert viewpoints. Additionally, the defendants may not apportion blame to the person who committed the criminal act. Having an experienced and proactive legal team defending a Negligent Security case is essential to securing a positive outcome for our clients.
