Under a section of legislation known as tort law, premises liability covers all aspects of a potentially dangerous environment that causes another person personal injury or wrongful death. Part of this law covers the failure to provide adequate security in establishments that are open to the public. When merchants fail to secure their premises from would-be assailants, serious injuries or even wrongful deaths may occur.

Negligent Security Representation
In general, most incidents involving negligent security happen in hotels, malls, shopping centers, markets, bars, theaters, and sporting event locations. Even if you are victimized in the parking lot of an establishment, if the property owner failed to provide adequate security to ensure your safety then you may be entitled to compensation.
Alabama negligent security cases can be broken down into several key types of situations. Our expert premises liability lawyers have experience handling negligent security cases stemming from:
- Failure to limit access
- Sale of alcohol to intoxicated patrons who then go on to assault or otherwise victimize guests
- Failure to provide adequate warnings of the dangers within an establishment
- Failure to cordon off, or secure, dangerous parts of an establishment
- A history of violence associated with a particular location (despite complaints of repeat offenses)
