Responsibilities of Property Owners in Criminal Attacks
Owners of shopping malls, apartment buildings, hotels, motels and other commercial property have a responsibility to protect renters, shoppers and guests from injuries caused by negligent or inadequate security. This area of law is known as premises liability. Here are some examples of ways that property owners can protect people from criminal attacks:
- Installing video cameras to monitor parking lots, stairwells and elevators
- Installing improved lighting
- Trimming bushes that criminals may hide behind
- Installing deadbolt and window locks in an apartment building or motel
- Hiring private security guards that are on constant patrol
- Asking local police for additional patrols in high-crime areas
Our lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation of your case to determine if the property owner was negligent in providing security. As former prosecutors, we will work with police to determine what caused the attack and what might be done to protect others from becoming crime victims in the future. We will work hard to maximize your financial compensation to make the rest of your life as secure as possible.
