A property owner and/or tenant of a dwelling must not only maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition, but must also keep it reasonably safe from violence against its customers and/or guests. Specifically, if a property owner, maintenance company and/or tenant has reason to know the premises are at risk of violence, it must take the necessary steps to warn of the dangers and to provide adequate security. Most corporations take these steps through hiring security officers, providing well-lit parking lots, surveillance cameras and signs warning of dangers. Unfortunately, others carelessly allow their customers and guests to walk freely on their premises with no warning or protection from criminal activity.
At Friedland & Associates, our negligent security lawyers work to protect the community. We litigate cases against companies who negligently invite people into their stores, hospitals and properties, but fail to protect them. Although there is no absolute protection from all criminal activities, there are certain safe guards that can be reasonable established and warning signs that can be easily installed.
