What is Foreseeability?

Foreseeability is perhaps the most important concept to a negligent security case because a duty must first be established as a threshold for liability. Could the property owner or event manager reasonably foresee the occurrence of the crime? Those who are in control of a property or location are in a much better position to know of the dangers of the property than the customer, visitor, or patron. They are also in a better position to take reasonable steps to prevent crime and to protect people.

A good example is entertainment venues that attract large crowds such as stadiums and amphitheaters. Patrons and customers of venues that draw large crowds take for granted that the establishment or promoter will provide a safe venue. If that establishment or promoter did not take reasonable steps to prevent crime there, even though another establishment probably would have foreseen the potential for criminal activity, then they could be held liable in a negligent security case.

Establishing Foreseeability & Liability

Negligent security cases usually hinge on the facts specific to the case, and typically require an extensive pre-filing investigation. One of the ways we have established foreseeability in these cases is to review incident reports and police reports, as well as calls for service to emergency personnel at and around the property.

A successful negligent security lawsuit can lead to:

  • Equitable compensation for the claimant
  • Positive changes in our society through overall security improvements

By holding businesses accountable for the safety of customers and guests through the civil justice system, wholesale improvements in societal safety have been realized. For example, the presence of security guards and video surveillance at malls, shopping centers, hotels, resorts, amusement parks, and virtually any business is an outgrowth of negligent security litigation.
