When considering a property owner’s obligations to their tenants and the public there are certain duties that are fairly well known. For instance, property owners must make sure walkways and stairways are clear of any debris that could cause a slip and fall accident. One property owner duty that is discussed less frequently is premises security.
If a property owner/business owner does not offer reasonable security measures and an individual suffers serious injuries/assault as a result, he or she may be eligible for compensation. This holds true regardless of property type (i.e. a residential facilities, like apartment buildings and also commercial properties, like hotels).
There is certain criteria that must be met in order to successfully pursue a claim due to negligent security, like whether or not the property/business owner exercised reasonable care, and whether or not adequate security features were in place.
