Owners and managers of commercial buildings must provide a safe environment for tenants, patrons and guests. This includes maintaining the building and parking areas to avoid slips, falls and other injuries. Proper lighting is crucial for illuminating walking areas in and outside the building to avoid preventable trips and falls. It is also important to provide security. Well-lit areas can deter criminals from committing robberies, assaults, rapes and other acts on the property that can injure or traumatize tenants or visitors.
Lack of Security Injuries
When there are security cameras, guards or controlled entrances in and around a building, it can deter criminal activity. Buildings without proper security can be an invitation for criminals to target those who live or work in the buildings. If a rape, assault or shooting occurs in an apartment or office building due to inadequate security, the owner of the building may be liable for the injuries. A premises liability lawsuit for inadequate security could entitle the victim to substantial compensation for their injuries.
