There are many types of property where the owner needs to take steps to ensure the safety of those who come onto the property, including:
- Apartment buildings
- Parking garages
Property owners have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for the people who come there and that includes providing security when necessary. If a property owner knows that the people who are visiting his or her property face a risk of physical violence, he or she needs to take action to prevent any harm coming to them. Steps that may be necessary can include:
- Adequate lighting
- Video monitoring
- Security personnel
- Warning people of risk
The need to warn can be a difficult issue to secure compliance on. Property owners may be reluctant to tell their tenants or guests of a risk to their safety due to the negative impact it would likely have on business. But, property owners have a legal duty to warn people about the risks they face and if they fail to warn their guests or tenants, they can be liable for injuries.
