Every year thousands of individuals are seriously injured and even killed due to inadequate security provided by negligent property owners.  Property owners that engage in negligent security practices will cause crimes and assaults to unnecessarily escalate on their properties.  Property owners are required to provide a safe place for their customers, guests, employees, students or tenants.  Those held liable for premises liability claims can include landlords, employers, business owners, universities, government entities and other property owners. 

There is a direct link between negligent security and unsafe conditions which can lead to vicious attacks such as physical assaults, robberies, sexual assaults, rape, molestation, workplace violence and other violent acts.
