Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises safe for all of their visitors. This duty requires such owners to keep others safe from harm that can come from preventable crimes and to undertake reasonable precautions to prevent criminal conduct from occurring on their property.
Negligent security based liability often arises in:
- Hotels and casinos
- Amusement parks
- Office and apartment buildings
- Schools and day care centers
- Shopping and strip malls
- Cruise ships
- Parking garages
- Restaurants, nightclubs and bars
- Sporting events, concerts and other public venues
At all of these places, visitors have the legal right to be reasonably safe from foreseeable harm and criminal victimization. But all too often, premises owners fail to properly protect them. Inadequate security measures typically include the failure to provide security guards or cameras, adequate lighting in parking lots or properly maintained gates, doors, fences, windows and locks. In addition, property owners often fail to properly select and supervise security personnel and to warn or notify patrons of recent criminal activity.
When these property owners fail in their legal duty, their patrons can become victims of assault, battery, rape, break-ins, robbery or other crimes.
