Owners of commercial buildings, including shopping malls, apartment complexes and other buildings, have a duty to people on the property to provide appropriate security measures to ensure safety. Negligent security can result in assault, robbery, and other criminal attacks. While the criminal is at fault as well, compensation may be owed to you for negligent security that could have been prevented. The lack of suitable security can lead to serious injuries. Negligent security can include inadequate lighting in public places such as parking garages, lack of security cameras or guards, inadequate locks, and more.
