Holding Property Owners Accountable for Injuries From Assaults
The police had responded numerous times to complaints of people being harassed in the convenience store parking lot. The owner's unwillingness to upgrade security finally resulted in a patron being accosted, beaten and robbed.
Austin Negligent Security Attorneys
Commercial property owners have a duty to ensure the safety of their patrons and the public. Certain businesses have a heightened obligation to provide security measures, especially in high-traffic locations with an elevated level of criminal activity. Commercial property owners are never allowed to needlessly endanger the public.
If you or a family member was assaulted as a result of inadequate security, you may have a claim against the business or property owner for physical injuries, economic losses and emotional trauma.
