An owner of a commercial property such as a housing complex, hotel, motel, retail store, bar, restaurant, movie theatre, mall is responsible to make sure that visitors are protected from the threat of violence. These establishments can present serious risks to visitors if not properly secure. If a business owner fails to provide adequate security and an individual is injured or assaulted, the property owner can be held liable in a premises liability claim.
Injuries can be possible due to inadequate security conditions such as:
- Faulty or absent locks or security mechanisms
- Poorly trained security personnel
- Poor Lightning
Commercial property owners aren’t always liable for assaults or injuries that occur on their property. However, if there has been a pattern of assaults or injuries on the property or if the business makes its patrons or guests vulnerable to assaults or injuries then the commercial property owner may have a duty to install security measures to prevent or deter these types of incidents.
PROPER AND ADEQUATE SECURITY MEASURES
- Better Lightning
- Better or Additional Locks
- Security Guard
- Security Cameras
- Controlled Parking Lot Access
Monetary compensation for an inadequate security claim may compensate you for:
- Medical Bills
- Physical Injuries
- Lost Wages
- Potential Future Lost Income
- Pain and Suffering
