Inadequate Building or Apartment Security Injury Claims Lawyer
Owners of commercial property have a duty to provide a safe space to those they invite onto the premises. Office buildings, retail stores, entertainment establishments and apartment buildings all need to be safe for their customers and tenants. This includes upkeep and maintenance to prevent injury accidents while on premises. It also includes adequate security to keep those on the premises safe from an attack.
How do building owners keep those on their property safe from criminals? There are many ways to minimize the risks of assaults and attacks by criminals. Those committing crimes do not want to be caught. They desire areas that are dark, with easy access and no surveillance to hide their activities. Business and apartment building owners can reduce the chance of criminal activity on their property by providing adequate security. This can include:
- Locked entrances
- Security cameras through the property
- Security guards
- Well-lighted parking lots, parking garages, stairwells and other isolated areas
When these deterrents are in place, buildings are not enticing to those pursuing criminal activities. This can reduce the chance of attacks or assaults that can cause serious injury to those visiting or living in these buildings.
