Crime Victims May Hold Property Owners Accountable
Property owners have a duty to provide a reasonably safe environment for customers, guests, renters and others who are invited onto their premises. This law applies to owners of stores, shopping malls, apartments, parking lots and other types of businesses.
There are preventive measures that can deter crime and protect guests from harm. Those measures include:
- Hiring security guards or asking police for increased patrols when there is a known risk of crime
- Installing secure locks on windows and doors of apartments and hotel rooms
- Installing cameras in parking lots, elevators and other areas where people may be assaulted
- Installing adequate lighting to deter crime
If you are the victim of a violent crime, it's important to contact a Clinton personal injury lawyer as soon as possible so that evidence of negligent security on the part of the property owner can be collected and preserved. Our lawyers will review crime reports to determine if the property owner was aware of the risk of crime in the area.
