Dedicated Premises Liability Lawyers
Property owners can be held liable for injuries that could have been prevented through proper security. Poor security can expose visitors to an unnecessary risk of rape, assault, and robbery. What is considered proper security depends on many factors, but may include:
- Increased lighting
- Security patrols
- Controlled access
- Security monitoring
Any visitors to the property, including customers and employees, may have a claim for premises liability if they are injured.
The Importance Of Investigation In Negligent Security Cases
Proving that a property owner did not do enough to protect visitors to the property is not a simple matter. Property owners are not required to take expensive security measures in every situation. They must have the means to make the changes and they must be aware that the current level of security poses a risk to visitors to their property. Proving this in court requires significant investigation.
