Property owners, whether they own residential, retail or office buildings, have what is known in the law as a “duty of care” to take the necessary steps to make sure that people are kept safe from the risk of injury or harm while on their property.
Some examples of injuries that can occur when a property owner does not provide adequate security for those who live, work or visit on their property include:
Apartment and condominium complexes: Owners of these properties are responsible for making sure parking lots, driveways, sidewalks, elevators and hallways are maintained in a way to prevent you from being injured. They must also provide a means, whether by hiring security guards or using security cameras to monitor public areas, to reduce the risk of an assault by an individual looking to rob or harm someone on their property.
Residential and Hotel Complexes: Owners of properties that provide recreational facilities such as swimming pools or gyms have a duty to make sure they are supervised when open and secured in a way to prevent unauthorized access while they are closed.
Colleges and Universities: Schools that provide on-campus housing for students are required to make sure residents are kept safe from harm and preventing those not authorized to be in dormitory, fraternity or sorority buildings from having access to the buildings.
Hotels: Hotel and motel owners must provide security to make sure guests are kept safe during their stay. In addition to providing security for parking lots, garages and public arease, they must also take the necessary steps to make sure guests are not at risk from harm by another in guest rooms and hallways.
Hospitals and Nursing Homes: Healthcare facilities must make sure visitors and patients are kept safe from harm in public and common areas, as well as providing security to protect patients from the risk of assault or injury from an unauthorized person in patient rooms.
