What is Negligent Security, and What Can I Do About It?
Premises liability is an area of law that offers remedies to people who are injured on other people’s properties. A property owner owes a duty of care to people who occupy or visit the property such as a shopping mall, an office building, an amusement park or a home. Some hazardous situations that trigger personal injury claims and lawsuits include slip-and-fall accidents, staircase accidents, escalator accidents, fires and dog bites, to name a few.
Some of the greatest hazards in a parking garage or a shopping center can be people who commit violent crimes in public places. For this reason, retail establishments and office parks should provide adequate security for clients, customers, delivery personnel and others who find themselves in these locales. If shopping mall management personnel have information regarding a history of assaults at bus stops or in restrooms, they should take steps to protect people who frequent those areas.
