Can I sue a property owner if I’m injured because they provided inadequate security?

Under premise liability laws, a victim may be able to pursue damages against a property owner if they were injured because they failed to keep their premises safe. Some examples of these types of cases include:

  • Lack of security cameras
  • Insufficient lighting in hallways, parking lots, parking garages, and stairways
  • Insufficient security staff or guards
  • Broken locks or locking devices
  • Hiring employees with violent backgrounds
  • Inadequate visitor screening processes, such as at a school or hospital
