If you’ve suffered an assault in a building or private lot, the owner may be liable in addition to the prosecution of the perpetrator. Property owners and managers of commercial stores and apartment complexes are required to provide buildings with adequate lighting, safe locks, and other necessary and reasonable safety features. If numerous crimes have occurred on or around the property, the owner has duty to take corrective safety measures and warn visitors of potential dangers.
The South Carolina premises liability attorneys at David Blackwell Law understand security laws. We consider every aspect of the case, including:
- Was the property owner subject to OSHA regulations that require commercial locations to protect the health and safety of employees and patrons?
- Did the property owner/manager provide adequate lighting?
- Was a perimeter fence installed to protect the property?
- Were surveillance cameras installed, and were they in the proper location?
When a property owner fails to provide a safe environment, they may be held accountable for the crimes that are committed on the property. They may also be held liable for your medical expenses as well as damages for pain and suffering.
