What Is Inadequate Security?

Sometimes people can be injured by an assault even when property owners did everything they should have to protect guests. In this case, they may not be liable. However, in other cases, inadequate security allowed the attack to take place. Examples of inadequate security include:

  • Failure of a hotel or motel or apartment to provide working locks on windows and doors
  • Failure to install adequate lighting in areas where people face risk of attack
  • Failure to install video cameras in areas such as elevators and parking garages
  • Failure to hire security guards or request additional police patrols in high-crime areas
