Crime Victim Due To Negligent Security

Brockton MA Owner Negligence, Premises Liability Personal Injury Lawyer

Assault And Battery By Bouncer Or Security GuardProperty owners and businesses have a legal responsibility to keep their property in a safe condition for all visitors. As a result, property owners are required to maintain adequate lighting in areas where visitors are expected to walk. Walkways, staircases and parking garages are all areas were guests are expected to walk and places where property owners must have adequate lighting.   If businesses of property owners fail to maintain these areas with sufficient lighting then guests can get hurt.

Whether it’s from a dead light bulb or faulty wiring, poor and inadequate lighting is a problem for the business or property owner to fix. Guests can sustain many types of personal injuries because of poor or inadequate lighting.

  • Negligent Security: Dimly lit areas attract criminal activity. It is the property owner’s responsibility to take steps to deter or prevent criminal activity from occurring on the property. Often times areas with poor or insufficient lighting are locations where criminals choose to engage in violent crimes and robberies
  • Slip and Fall Accidents and Injuries: Broken or worn steps, uneven pavement, snow and ice, broken hand railings and other unsafe or hazardous conditions can be hidden in dimly lit or dark areas.

The city or towns building code outlines what type of lighting is required for particular buildings and particular areas.
