When an apartment complex, bar, retail store or other business has a history of security-related issues, or their security consultant/company has a duty to take action, they may be held liable for your injuries.

No one is or can be expected to protect against every possible accident or crime that could be committed. When there are reasonable measures that could be taken to prevent injury or harm, but the measures were not implemented and injury resulted, the responsible parties may be held liable. Reasonable safety measures may include:
- Bouncers and security for bar fights
- Hotel security
- Camera and surveillance systems
- Adequate lighting
- Security guards
If these and other precautions are not taken, innocent people may become victims of crimes including robbery, theft, assault, sexual assault, abduction and murder. In addition to the physical injuries associated with these crimes, emotional trauma may accompany these events. The injury attorneys at Grey Law, consider all of these aspects when pursuing compensation.
If you have been assaulted, robbed or violated while on another person’s property, you may be able to file a premises liability claim against the owner of that property. Businesses and privately owned properties have a responsibility to reasonably provide for the safety of those individuals who are present on the property, including the prevention of foreseeable criminal attacks on the premises.
