You should feel safe from having an injury or attack when in your apartment building or any other commercial structure. Adequate security should be used in and around all apartments and commercial buildings to ensure that those on the property are kept safe from criminals. If you are seriously injured due to an attack, robbery or other assault that could have been prevented with adequate building security, you may be entitled to compensation. Our team at Burnside Law Firm can help you pursue a premises liability claim against the building owner.
There are criminals that target innocent people, especially in areas where they believe it can be done undetected. Whether they are motivated by money or only want to inflict harm, it is the responsibility of apartment and commercial building owners to deter these people from committing acts on their property. Parking lots with adequate lighting and cameras can discourage criminal activity, as can security guards and other precautions inside the building. If nothing is done to dissuade criminal behavior and an attack or injury occurs on the property, it may be determined that the property owner is partially at fault for the assault.
