Retailers and venues (such as event venues, bars, and nightclubs) will often have security personnel on hand to protect the premises and also ensure the safety of patrons. Providers of security services owe persons at the premises a duty of care to use reasonable skill to maintain, manage, and conduct their security operations in a safe manner. Sometimes, however, security personnel fails to ensure the protection of patrons, either by failing to act to protect a patron from harm, or even by using excessing force and needlessly subjecting a patron to assault and battery. In such cases, the venue and its security services can be held liable for the harm caused to the patron. If you feel you have been the victim of negligent or tortious conduct at the hands of security personnel, it is important to contact an experienced attorney on your side who will know how to help you obtain the compensation you are owed.
