Houston Negligent Security Attorney
Property and business owners have a responsibility to visitors to warn them of known dangerous conditions upon their premises and/or provide adequate security when the business premise is in an area that it is known for a high violent crime rate. Yet injuries, sometimes even catastrophic, still occur in Texas from property owners’ failure to provide security or adequate security in apartment complexes, schools, restaurants, banks, hotels, and bars. It is a property owner’s responsibility to provide a safe environment to visitors and inhabitants by taking measures such as securing doors and gates or providing sufficient lighting in hallways, stairwells and parking lots. They are also obligated to hire security guards, conduct pre-employment screenings and routinely inspect the property for safety issues when they have reason to know that the likelihood of criminal activity is high in the surrounding area.
