Negligent security claims are a type of personal injury claim based on the failure of an owner or occupier of property to exercise reasonable care to protect its visitors from foreseeable risks. It can involve both physical and psychological harm due to exposure to danger, such as assault, robbery, or sexual assault.

When dealing with negligent security claims, it is important to identify all potentially liable parties and secure just compensation for the victims of such negligence.
