Premises liability: Inadequate security

October 25, 2009

If you were injured on someone else’s property, the owner of that property may be liable for your damages. Certain circumstances give away to what is known as a “premise liability” lawsuit, which is one basis for a Texas personal injury lawsuit.

One type of premises liability lawsuit arises when inadequate security contributes to a person being the victim of some type of criminal act. Such criminal acts can include robbery, car theft, assault, kidnapping, rape or even murder.

Many inadequate security claims arise from attacks perpetrated in shopping centers, hotels or apartment complexes. When you are on one of these types of properties, you have a reasonable expectation of security and safety – which means the owner of the property owes you a duty to take reasonable steps to maintain a safe and secure environment.

Factors that can contribute to inadequate security include:

  • Lack of trained security staff on the premises
  • Poor lighting in parking lots or parking garages
  • Inadequate security systems within a building
  • Overgrown trees
  • Lack of security cameras
