Negligent security can involve a number of incidents, some of which can leave you with significant injuries. The consequences of inadequate security can leave you with medical bills, property damage, and other financial harm. It can also leave you shaken, which can make dealing with a complicated legal matter challenging. A personal injury lawyer can handle it for you.
At Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, we will explain the laws of your state and the types of damages they allow you to recover. Our lawyer will investigate your negligent security incident, assess its value, and guide you through the settlement negotiation process. While your lawyer handles your negligent security claims, you can focus on recovering your physical and emotional well-being.
Economic and Non-Economic Damages for Victims of Negligent Security
After suffering injuries due to negligent security, you deserve to recover financial compensation. Recoverable economic damages are tangible and have or can be expected to come out of your pocket. They typically include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost wages
- Loss of future earning potential
- In-home medical support
- Treatment-related travel costs
- Property damage or loss
- Diminished property value
We also request a range of non-economic damages. These are intangible and can be difficult to calculate or document on your own. Our negligent security attorney understands how to provide tangible proof of your intangible damages, which could include:
- Physical impairment
- Physical disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
- Diminished quality of life
If a negligent security concern led to the demise of a family member, we also help you recover wrongful death damages. In most cases, the decedent’s parents, spouse, and children can file a wrongful death action.
How State-Imposed Filing Deadlines Could Affect Your Negligent Security Case
In North Carolina, the personal injury statute of limitations is generally three years, according to G.S. § 1-52. Similarly, in South Carolina, the personal injury statute of limitations is generally three years, per S.C. Ann § 15-3-530.
The filing deadline can vary from state to state based on the age of the injury victim and several other factors. Understanding the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit in your state is critical to your case since missing it can mean you inadvertently relinquish your right to file your lawsuit at all.
Our law firm will explain the filing deadline, any exceptions or fluctuations, and the potentially costly consequences of failing to file your negligent security lawsuit within the allotted time.

Commonly Reported Examples of Negligent Security
Negligent security can mean a door was left unlocked or ajar and led to an intrusion. It can also mean a security guard was not present when required or inattentive to their duties.
Additional examples of negligent security include:
- Security guards who were not appropriately trained or vetted
- Lack of proper lighting in parking lots, garages, and other areas
- Lack of security cameras, metal detectors, or other security measures
- Security guards who used excessive force or behaved inappropriately
These are not the only actions that constitute negligent security or entitle you to seek damages. If you believe insufficient security was the cause of a recent accident or injury, one of our team members will consult with you about your personal injury claim and your potential for recovering damages.
Proving Negligence Leads to the Liability in Your Negligent Security Case
To prove the property owner’s negligence in your case, we collect evidence that proves they owed you reasonable care and breached their responsibility when they failed to provide it. It will also prove their action or inaction caused your current situation and financial harm.
When you leave evidence collection to our client-focused negligent security attorneys, we also collect witness statements, expert opinions, and photos and videos that support your right to recover damages.
