Negligent security cases can have some of the most devastating consequences on people’s lives of any type of injury related case. These type of injuries include not just broken bones but also death, rape, brain damage, in the multitude of incredibly serious injuries. These type of cases can result from a business owner who wants people to come on to the premises so they can make money but doesn’t invest enough to make sure that these people are safe.
A business owner has an obligation to make sure their place of business, including parking lots and the areas surrounding it, are safe for their business invitees/customers. Some businesses may be located in dangerous areas, which can attract dangerous individuals. However, this does not excuse the landlord from their obligations.
I once represented a client who was challenging a business owner who knew his business was located in an area that had a lot of crime. Despite knowing this, he did not invest in any safety measures, such as a security guard. Many more affordable precautions such as lighting and cameras could have been installed to increase customer safety.
The business owner has an obligation to make the premises safe. If they failed to do so and persons are injured because of it, they can and seek compensation for whatever injuries incurred as a result.
