There are several types of crimes that can arise as a result of having inadequate security on premises. They include:
- Auto theft
Apartment buildings, office complexes, parking lots and the premises of businesses are some of the most vulnerable to these types of crimes. There are many contributing factors, such as lack of proper lighting, lack of security presence, fencing and proper working alarm systems that may contribute to the occurrence of a crime. After all, someone with ill intent only has to access a property and take advantage of their surroundings in order to commit a crime.
Inadequate security puts you at risk
When walking to our cars in a mall parking lot, we expect to be able to see and to be able to stay safe. However, in inadequate lighting, this situation may easily be taken advantage of by a potential mugger, or lead to a potential assault. We expect to be able to leave and enter our offices and homes in well-lit, secured areas that we feel safe walking in. If a crime occurred and proof exists that it was the result of a property owner failing to secure the premises, the property owner may be held liable for any injuries or losses that took place due to a lack of security under premises liability law. Those who suffer deserve compensation, and adequate representation. Contact us. Our New Hampshire firm will give you the respect you deserve and fight for the compensation you're entitled to under the law.
