Can You Get Compensation For Inadequate Security & Assault Injuries?
Property owners have a duty to ensure that the patrons who park in their parking lots, walk through their stories or climb their stairs are safe. Simply stated, they must provide an environment free of hazards. When property owners fail to put safety first, injury victims may be able to pursue compensation.
When Criminal Acts And Accidents Are Caused By Inadequate Security
