Negligent Security

Property owners (and managers and occupiers) have a duty to prevent foreseeable crimes on their property. All too often, lives are put in danger when apartment complexes ignore their tenants’ requests to make repairs on the property. If a property owner knows a lock is broken, fails to fix it, and then their tenant is raped or killed, the property owner should be held responsible. If a hotel knows a crime against their guests is likely, they should warn their guests and take measures to prevent the crime. If you or a loved one have been the victim of a crime at a motel, apartment or other business property, you may have a negligent security case.
