What are examples of inadequate security?
If someone is physically attacked on another person’s property because the business or property owner did not implement reasonable safety measures to protect visitors from violent crimes, then the victim may be able to pursue an inadequate security claim.
The most common violent crimes associated with inadequate security claims are:
- Rape/Sexual Assault
While inadequate security can happen on most private and commercial properties, it frequently occurs at:
- Apartment Complexes
- Parking Lots/Parking Garages
- Office Buildings
- Grocery Stores/Supermarkets
- Shopping Malls
- Retail Stores
- College Campuses/Campus Housing
When businesses and property owners fail to provide adequate security, the results can be devastating. Some of the most common examples of inadequate security are:
- Insufficient lighting
- Failure to post warnings about known risks or dangers
- Lack of security cameras
- Failure to monitor security cameras
- Installing fake cameras/cameras that don’t work to give a false sense of security
- Lack of or broken physical barriers, such as fences, gates, doors, windows, and locks
- Failure to appropriately restrict access to the property
- The absence of trained and qualified security guards on patrol
If you or someone you love was attacked on another person’s property, it’s critical to move fast to protect your rights. While the person who hurt you will most likely face criminal charges, an Atlanta personal injury lawyer can make irresponsible businesses and property owners answer for their negligence.
Are property owners and businesses liable for injuries to trespassers?
Although property owners and businesses are required to provide adequate security to visitors, it doesn’t automatically mean the property owner or business is at fault if someone is injured while trespassing on their property. There are exceptions, but in most cases a property owner or business can’t be held legally responsible when someone who isn’t lawfully allowed on the premises gets hurt.
