As part of maintaining a safe environment for all visitors or customers, owners of property that is open to the public often need to provide adequate security on their premises. A lack of security or incompetent security can lead to traumatic or violent crimes in locations that may include, but are not limited to:
- Amusement Parks
- Apartment Complexes
- Hotels or Motels
- Office Buildings
- Parking Garages
- Parking Lots
- Public Parks
- Shopping Malls
- Sporting Events
- Storage Facilities
- Swimming Pools
When a location open to the public has inadequate security, people may be victims of violent crimes such as robbery, rape, or sexual assault. People may suffer monetary losses or they could also sustain serious injuries such as broken bones or severe fractures that require extensive medical care. In some cases, innocent people may be killed.
Any owners of property that is open to the public have a legal obligation to ensure that their premises are as secure as possible for the safety of their visitors. When a property owner either fails to provide adequate security or the security fails to protect victims of violent crimes, then the property owner is negligent and can thus be held liable for all financial damages the victims suffer.
Most every property owner will have an insurance company deal with any premises liability claim arising from inadequate security. These companies will be very quick to contact victims and have representatives act very friendly and concerned, but they are actually attempting to get injured people to make recorded statements that may be used to reduce their compensation later on. If you were injured or your loved one was killed because of inadequate security on property open to the public, you should avoid speaking to any insurance agents or adjusters.
