Providing adequate security may be one of the duties that a property owner owes to lawful visitors, to protect them from unreasonable harm. It is important to note that the property owner’s responsibility in this regard will vary depending on the type of property, its location, and whether there has been any criminal activity in the area. Depending on these factors, the property owner or manager may have a duty to provide security gates, cameras, lighting, alarms, or even security personnel.
If you were assaulted or attacked at another’s property, Fay Law Group can help by determining whether the owner of the property is accountable, and how to proceed with a civil case that could help you recover damages for medical treatment, emotional trauma, lost earnings, and more. The assailant may face criminal charges and imprisonment, which can bring peace of mind, but recovering fair compensation can help you face a more stable future.
